A Book of Alpennia

This book is in the process of being written. I've created this entry so I can reference it in blog posts. The "publication date" is a place-holder and does not have any actual reality at this point.

I've rearranged the order the next several publications come in, because this one seemed like a good one to kick off the sequence of material on Asia. I feel very self-conscious about how thoroughly Euro-centric the majority of the Project is, but at the same time, I have many of the same limitations discussed in this article. In particular, I'm largely limited to material published in English. But I've added half a dozen new items to my to-do list and maybe they'll point me towards some other useful sources.
