Save to active project


The dream of a book becomes reality because of the contributions of many people. We want to acknowledge the contributions of our friends, colleagues, students, and family members who helped our dream come true. As part of our research team at Boston College, Joyce Aronson, Ph.D., Elizabeth Reuman Hemond, Ph.D., and Julie O'Rourke, Ph.D., conducted the interviews on which this book is based. Marissa Mezzanotte, Marguerite Tierney, and Dorothy Artesani Cochrane provided us with invaluable help. We also wish to thank the administration of the university, especially the deans of our respective schools, for their support. John Harney of Book Consultants of Boston encouraged and offered guidance to us as this project unfolded. We are indebted to the staff of Greenwood Publishing Group for their help, especially Lynn Zelem, Production Editor, and Frances Kianka, Copy Editor. To Congressman Barney Frank we extend thanks for his interest in and support of our work. Colleagues and friends who were generous in reading drafts of the manuscript and offering us feedback included Lou Benson, Dorigen Keeney, Joe Miglorie, and Jack Ward. To members of our families--Anna and Claudia Mackey, Evelyn and Mary O'Brien, Winifred and Richard Rome-- we owe a special debt of gratitude, not only for the love that only families can offer but for their astute commentaries on our work.
