Acknowledgments

I would like to thank a number of my teachers at the University of Virginia, including Larry Sabato, whose course in Virginia government and politics inspired my interest in the subject, and A. E. Dick Howard, whose two-volume Commentaries on the Constitution of Virginia remains the indispensable source on Virginia constitutional development and proved invaluable in the preparation of this book. Additionally, Martha Derthick, James Ceaser, and Henry Abraham directed my study of federalism, American political development, and constitutionalism, each of which has informed this project. Finally, I am grateful to Alan Tarr of Rutgers University for his invitation to contribute the Virginia volume in this series.

I also appreciate various other sources of support for this project. In particular, I benefited from an Archie Grant, a Zachary T. Smith Professorship, and a Reynolds Leave from Wake Forest University that made it possible to conduct the research for this book. In addition, the staff at the Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia and at the Library of Virginia and the Interlibrary Loan Department at Wake Forest helped me secure access to a number of key documents and materials.
