Fasnafan: A Minor Library in Sociology, Anthropology and the Humanities

Welcome to the Fasnafan Online Library

Welcome to our humble online library. The intention is to provide reading materials from disparate published sources without violating "fair use" or "fair dealing" provisions of diverse copyright agreements. These are single chapters that can be read online only--allowing even fewer privileges that any library user has to read and photocopy materials. In addition, these readings cannot be printed or captured, so that safegaurds against commercial, profit-oriented uses have been built in. These readings are for personal educational use only, by default. Please note that these downloads are not recommended for dial-up Internet users or for those without an Adobe PDF Reader.
