Nicholas Johnson Bibliography Main Page


(with Bibliography Supplement: 1995-1996)


(a) Given the size of the total document (333 pages in hard copy), for the convenience of users of this electronic reproduction, it has here been broken down into 11 Web pages. The breaks are, for the most part, at logical groupings; however, they are primarily for purposes of making Web pages of manageable size.

(b) Page numbers and approximate file size (in kilobytes) have been indicated for Word Perfect for Windows 5.2 files; thus, although both may vary for the user, depending on format, the comparitive sizes may still be useful.

(c) This online edition is, in almost every particular, a faithful reproduction of the hard copy edition. As a result, however, some portions are of little use (such as the table of contents references to page numbers which do not exist online) or are dated (such as the resume contained in one of the appendices). Added notes are usually in [brackets] with a signature of, e.g., "-NJ January 31, 1997." Other "notes" are from the hard copy edition.

(d) A hard copy edition is available for the cost of reproduction; send your request by way of any of Nicholas Johnson's coordinates.

(e) As the title of this Web page indicates, this Bibliography covers material only through December 1995. Items for 1995-1996 are in "Bibliography Supplement: 1996."

(f) Note that hard copy of numerous documents (almost all of which are not available online) are available through the University of Iowa Library Special Collections, for which there is an online index. (See also, within this Web site's "portal," Summary/What's Here and How to Find It/Nicholas Johnson Archives.) Links to the full text of virtually all writing from July 11, 1996 to April 13, 2016, are available from the "Earlier Publications" page.

This bibliography was first prepared for online availability and posted to the Web on January 31, 1997. Minor modifications have been made, to this page of the Bibliography only, on January 27, 2004, January 22, 2005. -- N.J.
