The First Family: Sources

Mike was about three-quarters of the way through writing the book when his publishers informed him there would be no room for the long version of the notes. This means several chapters' worth of the discursive remained to be written; in addition considerable checking would be required to ensure the remainder conformed to the text as eventually edited and published. Though Mike optimistically expected to be able to complete this work before the book was published, other things got in the way and some of the work is still outstanding. The completed discursive notes will go up here later in the year, in the meantime – particularly for Dutch readers denied any detailed notes in their edition of De Eerste Familie – you can download the shorter version of the notes here, which at least gives precise source attributions for all Mike's statements.
