The book project that motivates this website

A Guide to Updated Files - 2010

E-mail the Webmaster: Dan Byrnes

In early 2006, Dan Byrnes and Ken Cozens formed a team to manage this website and co-write a book on economic history. The book's title is still not decided, but the book will be concerned with tensions between mainstream history, maritime, economic, social and cultural history, popular views held on history old and new in a variety of countries vis-a-vis economic history, and some aspects of modern popular culture in the Western World.

The book will explore many facets of such interests - and the book draft to date possibly explores perhaps too many facets. This webpage - preamble.htm - is not an introduction to the actual book, it is a preamble as an introduction to the curiosities that the book will expolore. This table will present a guide to files drawn from the book that we happen to upload to the Internet. (If filenames are not yet hyperlinked, they are not yet available, still unfinished as part of the book project.)

If in any doubt, please email the webmaster, Dan Byrnes.

If interested in the website project only, please see the sitemap. The sitemap presents a complete and hyperlinked list of files comprising the website in strictly alphabetical order.

Addenda - More to come

[And, yes, this project could also become something like a surfable book, or a website book ... Surfable book graphic ... an idea we first met in the late 1990s, and an idea we feel is well worth pursuing on the Internet in a variety of formats!]
