B.14: Citing to an Introduction, Foreword, Preface or Epilogue

B.14(a): Full Citation

TLR follows Bluebook 15.6 for full citations.

B.14(b): Short Citations

For short citations, TLR follows Bluebook 15.10.1, treating Introductions, Forewords, Prefaces, or Epilogues as a short work within a collection. If the entire work has been fully cited in a prior footnotes, cite the shorter section as author (roman), title (italicized) in full work name (usually author last name of the full work) (small caps) supra note X, at pincite, where X is the footnote of the full work. Note that this creates a supra cite that itself cites to a supra.
