Below are names of chapters and chapter subtitles of this site's former draft book (all book links below are dead). Chapter 2 was removed in 2013 and turned into a book manuscript about downwinder compensation, with a focus on the downwinder case Irene Allen et. al. v. U.S. (not published). In 2014, Chapter 5 was made into a short ebook and in 2015 Chapter 12 was made into a book and e-book.
