By Sherry L. Muller; Mark Overmann | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

We are most grateful to the interns and volunteers who helped compile and annotate the first edition of the selected resources in this book, which was initially assembled as a handout for career roundtable participants. We are deeply indebted to Chris Bassett for giving his time and considerable talents to help us finish the book. His meticulous editing and factchecking, constructive questions and suggestions, and unfailingly cheerful attitude were invaluable.

We are grateful to Alexander Hunt for his thoughtfulness and guidance in plotting a direction for this book, for his detailed updates and edits, and for bringing his two-and-a-half-pound Yorkshire terrier, Oscar, to working sessions as a much-needed distraction. We also benefited from the research and editing skills of Joanne Tay, Melissa Whited, and other National Council for International Visitors (NCIV) staff members.

We extend a special thank you to Richard Brown, director of Georgetown University Press, for believing that this book would be a creative contribution to the fields and that we were the people to write it.

Mark: I am most grateful for the support that my former NCIV colleagues have shown Sherry and me on this book project as well as all that they have taught me about what it means to create a rewarding career in these exciting fields. My gratitude goes to Jim Stockton, former NCIV board chair, for recognizing that this project was one worth pursuing. I am indebted to Bo for his company and his insightful “editorial suggestions.” My most sincere thanks must go to Sherry for inviting me to be a coauthor on this book—it has been a rich and rewarding experience. And last in this list but never least in my life, my love and thanks go to Katie for the unremitting encouragement she gives me and the unwavering confidence she always shows in me.

Sherry: Heartfelt thanks to my family and friends for their steady support and encouragement throughout the writing process—in particular Michael, Kathy, Jamey, and Chivalry. You are my anchors. I would also
