The articles listed below are drawn from the encyclopedia’s major overviews as samples only, presented as pdfs of the pages from the printed work as published by Yale University Press in May 2008. All copyright protections and restrictions that apply to the print edition apply here as well.

The samples provided will be rotated periodically to highlight other topics covered; saved links to the current samples may therefore cease to be functional. The list of samples included was last updated on January 22, 2010.
