This site developed from an attempt to write a book. I think the web-site format suits the the material, it allows for searching, easy cross referencing and supports non-sequential reading. 

Version 2.0 February 2024 - Significant appearance change migration to Joomla 4 software

Related site hope-wiki was launched in July 2020 - this extends information on what goof looks like

Future Plans

  • Refinements for economics, and recent history
  • Ongoing addition of essays 
  • Inaugurating work on The Hope Association and or discussion forum

I don't think this ebook/site will ever be entirely finished, not least because human knowledge is developing all the time. I have taken a snapshot of V1.0 and archived it. The best I can hope for is that the framework is stable so that I can keep learning, adding and refining the articles. The web-site format makes keeping up to date and continual development practical.
