Note: This is a book that I started many years ago. It has been lightly edited for posting online by J. Winter. As JW notes the source document was prepared in WordPerfect on PC. A copy of the unedited original wpd file can be downloaded from http://bahai-library.com/smith_uhj_bahai_world . This was converted to OpenOffice on Mac, typeset, and exported as PDF. Edits include: author’s working notes removed or updated, references to sections not yet written (e.g. introduction, foreword, upcoming chapter references, appendixes) deleted, underdot diacritic markers removed, formatting streamlined, paragraph styles defined/standardize, spellchecked, URLs updated (J. Winters, August 2012).
