In chapter 1, Triad and the Framework are described from a community perspective. In chapter 2, the authors describe how the Framework evolved from a more theoretical standpoint. They introduce its anatomy and initiate a more detailed discussion of its goals and the research that informed them. Right up front, they make it clear that the Framework is intended to be dynamic and not definitive—a point that will be returned to at the end of the chapter. This free selection includes the Table of Contents, Introduction, About the Authors, and the Index. As a special bonus, an excerpt from chapter 3 is also included.
