CAVEAT: THIS INDEX IS A LABOR OF LOVE WHICH HAS BEEN TRANSLATED FROM FILE CARDS, TO A TYPED MS, TO BOOK FORM, TO ELECTRONIC PUBLISHING (VIA AN OCR SCANNER) BY ONE PERSON, WENDY McELROY. ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN PAINSTAKINGLY PROOFED AT EACH STAGE, THERE ARE UNDOUBTEDLY ERRORS WHICH HAVE CREPT IN. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH SUCH FLAWS.
HOW TO USE THIS INDEX
The index is organized into three sections:
- Titles and Periodicals: references to books and periodicals discussed in Liberty;
- Individuals: references to contributors and to individuals discussed in Liberty; and,
- Subject: references to subjects discussed in Liberty.
These sections are cross referenced and a reference such as an article by Tucker on government would appear in the following sections:
- Under Individuals at Tucker, the reference would read "Tucker, Benjamin R.:. . . on government, ";
- Under Subject at government, the reference would read "Government: . . . Tucker on, "; and
- Under any other heading which is significantly discussed in the article.
The references are organized with the Whole Issue Number first and the page number second. (Liberty's masthead indicates both the date and the Whole Number of the issue.) Thus, the citation 7p.3 refers to Whole Issue Number 7 at page 3.
Although most passing references are excluded, when the individual or the periodical is particularly significant, the references have been included. Thus, under Auberon Herbert, you will find a listing of every time Herbert's name appeared in Liberty whether that appearance was lengthy or not. The index is organized so as to distinguish between a passing reference and a more significant one. For example, in the hypothetical entry of:
- Individual's name
- p.2, 7p.3, 8p.4; on atheism, 403p.2; on rent, 209p.4.
The first three references are passing ones, The significant references are alphabetically organized thereafter.
There are two forms of significant references concerning individuals and periodicals. The individual may be writing on a subject or may be the topic of discussion by someone else. These references are distinguished:
- Individual's name
- lp.2, 7p.3, 8p.4; on atheism, 403p.2; on rent, 209p.4; Tucker on, 211 p.3; Yarros on,1 p. 1.
The distinctions drawn between concepts such as Government and State are those drawn by the individuals in Liberty themselves.
