-====== ​Quick Introduction ​======+====== ​Abridgements ​======
  
-Abridge Me is a collection of abridgements of non-fiction books, mostly concerned with [[WP>politics]][[WP>economics]] and [[WP>international development]].  At the outset, it was established as an open [[WP>wiki]], but the fact is that due to a lack of outside interest, it has remained ​the work of a single author since its creation in 2008.  Editorial policy hasn't undergone a radical change of philosophy, but it seemed somewhat dishonest ​to present this work as a wiki collaboration when that has never been the case.  That said, if you are interested in contributing in any way, you are most welcome to email abridgeme ​[atgmail [dotcom.+^  Title                                                             ​^ ​ Author ​                                   ^
