MANY PEOPLE HAVE HELPED make this book possible. I especially want to thank George J. and Kathleen Waters Matthews, whose support for scholarship at Northeastern University has made this book possible. I also want to thank my dean, Emily Spieler, for generous research support and a schedule conducive to writing. Many thanks are also owed to my wonderful colleagues at Northeastern University School of Law. In particular, I am grateful to Roger Abrams for insisting that I finally write the book, to Hope Lewis for showing me the connections between population-based legal analysis and human rights, and to Mary O'Connell for always providing encouragement and an open door.

Over the years I have had the great honor to work with and learn from many eminent scholars in public health and law. Among those with whom I have collaborated on projects that have informed this book are George Annas, Christopher Banthin, Richard Daynard, Richard Goodman, Patricia Illingworth, Peter Jacobson, Wendy Mariner, Anthony Robbins, and Jason Smith. Without their inspiration and insight this book could not have been written. I am also very grateful to those who have read all or part of the various drafts of the manuscript: Patricia Illingworth, Peter Jacobson, Hope Lewis, Wendy Mariner, Mary O'Connell, and Jason Smith. Any errors and misunderstandings in this work are my own and do not reflect on my collaborators and reviewers.

As always, Jan McNew provided unsurpassed secretarial support. The reference librarians at Northeastern University School of Law, especially Susan Zago and Kyle Courtney, helped me track down both readily accessible and obscure materials. Many students and former students at Northeastern University School of Law assisted me with research. Among them are Robin Ackerman, Tanya Booth, Marc Catalono, Julie Ciollo, Jeremy Cohen, Lisa Conley, Erik Heath, Dara Hefler, Sarah Klosner, Matthew McHugh, Siddhartha Mukherjee, Dan Perlman, Audrey Perlow, Golda
