TO AVOID THE CREATION OF NEW FALLACIES AND MYTHS, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR SCHOLARS TO BE CAREFUL, BE PRECISE AND TO GET THE FACTS RIGHT AND TO BE EVEN-HANDED WHEN DISSEMINATING COMMENTS AND REVIEWS ABOUT THE  ORIGINAL ACADEMIC WORK AND ORIGINAL CONCEPTIONS OF OTHERS AND ANY EVALUATIONS OF IT.

My Oxford University Press Bibliography on Fencing and Stolen Goods is in-press and will be published very shortly in 2017.
