Acknowledgments

The majority of the papers included in this volume were presented at the international workshop Technologies of Race: Eugenics, Biopolitics and Nation-Building in Interwar Europe, held at the Central European University in Budapest between 28 and 29 June 2004. The workshop was generously sponsored by Pasts, Inc. Centre for Historical Studies in Budapest, in collaboration with the History Department of the CEU, the Wellcome Trust, and the Department of History, Oxford Brookes University.

First and foremost, I should like to express my gratitude to Sorin Antohi, the director of Pasts, Inc., for his support, generosity and guidance before, during and after the workshop. Equally important, he is responsible for initiating the idea of the publication of this volume. His advice and encouragement of this project has proved invaluable.

Thanks are also due to László Kontler, the then head of the History Department at CEU, for his support. Without Zsuzsanna Macht, the administrative assistant in the History Department, and Dávid Marno, former assistant to the director of Pasts, Inc., the workshop would not have been a success.

I owe especial thanks to the copy-editor of this volume, Katya A. M. Kocourek from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies in London (SSEES), who graciously accepted the difficult, and at times seemingly insurmountable, task of copy-editing the first version of the manuscript. A generous grant from the Institute of Historical and Cultural Studies at Oxford Brookes University made Katya's editorial work possible. I should also like to express my gratitude to Elisabeth Jay, the Institute's director, for her assistance.

Matt Feldman deserves special gratitude for his careful reading of the final version of the manuscript. His suggestions and comments have helped to improve both the clarity and the quality of most papers included in this volume. I am also grateful to Diane B. Paul for her constructive criticisms and comments.

Linda Kunos, as Assistant Editor at CEU Press, deserves further gratitude for her patience and kindness during the publication.

Finally, I should like to acknowledge the generous financial support I have received as Marie Curie Fellow, which has enabled me to conduct research for this volume as well as to enjoy the intellectually stimulating environment at Oxford Brookes University.
