Indexes     

There are two indexes for this website.  The first is an Index of Subject Matter.  It contains page references to various themes and points within the materials.

The second is a general Index organized alphabetically.

Because this site is an electronic version of a print volume each of the sections and chapters in the book are individual webpages.  Within each webpage the pages of the various sections and synopses are consecutively numbered just as they are in the book itself; and, from webpage to webpage the pages are numbered consecutively as they are in the book.  Thus, to use the indexes you will need to engage in an extra step, determining the individual webpage where the index item is located.  The first step is to determine from either of the indexes what page number pertains to the topic you wish to investigate.  The second step will require that you go to the section or synopsis webpage from the book, listed below, that matches the page number from the index.  The third step will be to go to that webpage and find the page number within the body of the material.  
     The webpages can be located via the icons in the menu bar at the top of each page.  The synopses are found in the Book Synopses icon.  After clicking on Book Synopses, click on Synopses in Reading Sequence and then go directly to the synopsis for which you are looking and click on it.  All sections other than the synopses have their own icons at the top of each section page and clicking on any of those icons will take you directly to the material.
  As there are no page breaks within any webpage, page numbers are interspersed, at the left margin, within the body of the material in each section or synopsis.
