Chapter 13 – Postscript & Bibliography

While I was trying to figure out how to end this article I came across
the following quotation in the “Coffee Games” insert of an abandoned
tabloid at a local Chinese takeout restaurant – a decidedly
non-scholarly publication. Nonetheless, because of my disappointment in
the reliance on secondary sources and the lack of systematic footnotes
that I found in my own research I think that it has more than an element
of “academic” truth to it.

“History
does not repeat itself, – historians merely repeat each other.”
