The All-purpose Dissertation Preface
Entry for 2017-06-21

Despite voluminous academic publications on the subject treated here, no scholar has hitherto undertaken to write this particular dissertation: a surprising omission in view of how precariously close to the present treatment many previous theses have ventured. In the interest of closing the consequent gap, this work is intended to provide future scholars who wish to pursue comprehensive research into the writings on this subject matter with an additional resource, without the citation of which any awp_postst at an exhaustive bibliography must henceforth be regarded as incomplete.
