Concordance to The Power of Ideas

compiled by Nick Hall

All impressions published before 2013 use the typesetting, and therefore the pagination, of the first edition (2000). The second edition (2013) has been completely reset. This concordance facilitates the conversion of page references to one edition into references to the other. The text of the second edition, which has been revised throughout, and added to, should be used in all new and revised translations. The concordance does not include the 2013 foreword or appendix.
