Why are you changing books published by Harvard University Press to Belknap?[edit]

Please explain. This looks like vandalism. Dougweller (talk) 21:53, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Dougweller. Belknap Press is an imprint used by Harvard. The replacements I have made are me correcting myself. I promise its not vandalism, it is all exactly as it appears in their current catalogue. (talk) 21:55, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Apologies, I was working on [1] which must be wrong then. Good idea to use edit summaries. Dougweller (talk) 06:39, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
However, I strongly feel that anything listed as a reference should have been used in the article. If not, it's 'Further reading'. Dougweller (talk) 06:41, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Hello, Dougweller. I share your view on this fully! I actually did sneak a cite of it into one of my edits. You'll see it there as footnote 29. :D (talk) 20:32, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
