    Depends on what you mean by "foundational"...

    Since Python has dynamic lists and dictionaries, I suspect you won't
    find any textbook focusing on linked-list or hashed lookup algorithms
    using Python.

    You can probably implement them, but they're not going to be very
    efficient. (And never "remove" an element from the linked-list
    implementation because Python would shift all the other elements, hence
    your "links" become invalid).
