Need an article or chapter from a book that’s not available online?

...thank you so much!! I have to write a paper based on this book but with everything going on, I was unable to check it out from the library before having to leave Pittsburgh. I initially tried to find an online version and couldn't get it anywhere. These scanned pages are going to be so helpful. I appreciate you!!!"
