It would be hopeless to attempt a comprehensive list of the individuals who have helped me complete this book, so I will confine myself to thanking my wife, Liz Jenkins, and my colleagues Michael Anesko, Deborah Clarke, Aminadav Dykman, Linda Ivanits, Gary Knoppers, William L. Petersen, and Stephen Suknaic.

I owe a special debt of gratitude to Kathryn Hume, who read and commented extensively on an early draft of the manuscript.
