Part V:  The Mwaning of Sweat as Part of the Curse


A Guide to Scientific Literature

     VIRTUALLY EVERY statement in this paper can be supported authoritatively from the literature on the subject which, as we have indicated, is voluminous. It did not seem necessary or desirable to document this material by specific references, which would have taken the index to a total of several hundred entries. It seemed simpler and probably sufficient to adopt a slightly different plan. We have presented below a small bibliography of the most important works, whether books, reviews or papers, dealing with the subject as a whole. This is followed by a list of journals, available in most large libraries, containing frequent articles on various aspects of the sweating mechanism.
     As a guide to the reader who wishes to pursue the subject further, we are listing the names of the most important authorities past and present. It should be comparatively simple to look in the annual index of any of these journals for any one of these names. It is a virtual certainty that their contributions will deal with some aspect of the subject matter of this Doorway Paper -- though of course without my bias!
