It is a pity that so important a book has to be announced so clumsily.

Who put this waffle together?
I presume we now have an 2008 edition?
In the 2006 edition of <snip> 600 immigrants he added 18 new ones to the
previous 650? Gobbledygook to me
600 immigrants was published in 2004 not in 2006
Did he reduce in 2006? from the previous 650, to 600 ? to which then were
added 18 new ones?
If it is 600 plus 18 plus yet another 28 makes 646 minus (I count in the
above) 5 totals 641
If it is 650 plus 18 plus yet another 28 makes 696 minus (I count in the
above) 5 totals 691 or did the illustious Hines muddle the disproofs?
With best wishes
