 Alastair McIntosh's Rare Third Party Resource Material


This page contains links to PDF files third party material that I hold on this website for use by colleagues, students and special interest groups. I will be adding more links and re-organising the page as it expands, but the file URLs should remain stable as should the URL of this index page at www.AlastairMcIntosh.com/general/resources.htm . To download a file, simply click and it should open in your PDF reader (usually Adobe Acrobat). You can then use "save" or "save as" to keep it permanently on your machine or to prepare it for forwarding on by email. With some of these documents, the link below will take you via an intermediary page on my website that provides context or download options. Unfortunately I am not able to respond to requests that sometimes come in to host people's stuff here. The links that are displayed are chosen strictly because they are unavailable elsewhere on the web and are material with which I work closely.

The 4 main volumes of the report are still on the UHI site at this link.  As that link has gone dead (July 2018) I have, at least for the time being, uploaded the other 4 volumes that I'd happened to have kept copies of, at the following links, each opens in a new window as may be slow to download:

Dis/claimer: The preparation of the files on this page is my personal responsibility and not that of any institutions or third parties with which I may be linked. Some of them were originally prepared under the terms of the Copyright Licensing Authority license that was held by the Centre for Human Ecology for our students. With others, generally out-of-print texts, I've usually been unable to make contact with original authors, and so I have acted in good faith on the presumption that they would be delighted if they were alive or readily contactable ... but if I'm wrong, and if any author or publisher is not happy with my posting material here, perhaps they could contact me and I will forthwith pluck out the offending eye.
