This Communicating with Prisoners ortext has a main text consisting of ordered articles grouped into ordered, hierarchical sections. The outline of the sections, with links to the articles in the sections, is above. This outline is always accessible from the navigation bar outline link. Each article is assigned to only one section. Hence a section does not include the articles in lower-level sections under it.
Each article can be meaningfully read independently. Sections can also be read independently. At the same time, articles and sections are meaningfully related to their previous and subsequent ones. Higher-level outline sections are more general. Lower-level outline sections are more specific. Read forward from any point in the outline that interests you. If you come to articles that don’t interest you, return to the outline and choose a different section from which to start reading.
From any section or article, you can see your outline section position just under the navigation bar on the top left. Those outline sections positions are linked to the corresponding sections. They allow you to move to more general sections of articles.
The text includes links to related articles, notes, statistics, datasets, and citations of relevant sources (references). Underlined text or a ^ sign at the end of a sentence indicates a link. Underlined text usually indicates a link to additional relevant text or data. The ^ sign at the end of a sentence typically is a link to a reference citation.
In the navigation bar, notes and data link to notes and data within the section currently being viewed. Hence if you want to see any data (statistics and datasets) available for a given section, go to that section and click on the navigation bar data link.
Notes and data are ordered and grouped into sections in the same way that articles are. The notes and data are conceptually subordinate to the articles. Their ordering is more conceptually diffuse. While notes and data are intended to be accessed from sections or articles, you can also access and navigate an outline of notes and a list of datasets. An outline of data (statistics and datasets) is also available, but many of the headings have no associated statistics or data. Statistics are a high-level description of data; they summarize and review data and datasets.
In addition, you can view collections of pieces (articles, notes, statistics, and datasets) by topic. The topic index cover only a small subset of the topics that this ortext addresses. The search link in the navigation bar provides a much more general and encompassing means to search for information on a particular topic.
This ortext is fully documented with citations to source references. The references are neither ordered nor grouped into sections. Relevant references are best located by following links found in the relevant piece of text. The navigation-bar search function doesn’t search references. You can search references through the references search page.
