ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I want to take this opportunity to thank many people without whom this volume would not have been possible. First, I want to thank James T. Sabin and Cynthia Harris of Greenwood Press, who showed their confidence in me, a political scientist, by assigning me the editorship of this book. Also, I need to thank John Wagner, development editor at Greenwood. John's kindness, professionalism, consideration, and assistance were invaluable to the completion of this book. It could not have been done without him. I also need to thank James Broussard, who introduced me to the project.

I also need to thank the many people who assisted me in the preparation of the manuscript. Rayana Gonzales, Mark Hatfield, Nicholas Johnson, Jennie Tomme, and Dodie Weidner all worked on the manuscript at different times. In addition, Nicholas Johnson helped oversee the progress of all the essays. David Fernandez III and Amy Portwood worked with me on the page proofs. All of them have my sincere thanks.

I also want to thank all the scholars who contributed to this book. Many of them advised me on different facets of the book, including suggestions for potential contributors to the volume. They were unfailing in their encouragement and support, and for this and their contributions I thank them.

By editing this book, I was introduced to the community of U.S. diplomatic historians, and to a person they gave of themselves to help me with this project. A senior historian told me early on: “Be the editor! Don't be shy about being the editor.” Regardless of the differences in age or discipline, they welcomed me, and for this I will always be grateful. Specifically, I also need to thank Edward Crapol and the late Kinley Brauer for reading and commenting on my Seward essay and Walter LeFeber for reading and commenting on my Sherman and Day essays. Their insights made the essays better.

Finally, I want to thank my 10-year-old nieces, Elizabeth and Ashley, who reminded me that sometimes an uncle needs to stop and play for a while to keep a sense of perspective critical to finishing a big job. Thanks.
