Subject: recommendations

I would very much like to have recommendations from members of
Humanist for outstanding articles or chapters of books in specific
areas of humanities computing. These articles or chapters should be
aimed at intelligent beginners rather than specialists. The areas I
am looking for are as follows:

1. Overviews and introductory surveys of humanities computing as a whole;

2. Modelling and simulation;

3. Text-encoding & the nature of text from a computational perspective;

4. Hypertext;

5. Communications & online resources;

6. Computer-assisted instruction;

7. Programming;

8. Numerical analysis & statistics.

Also I would like recommendations for brief surveys in each of the
major disciplines, including art history and music. I should also say
that my "humanities computing" includes anthropology, archaeology,
economic history, law, and sociology.

I'd happily also receive any constructive criticisms of the above

Please include as much bibliographic information as you have at hand.

Thanks very much.
