A book like this is the product of many minds, hands and computers and so the editor must proffer his thanks to all of them. First and foremost, without the efforts of the person who did all of the technical editing, none of the work of the authors or the editor would have seen the light of day. All of the technical editing was done by one of the co-authors of the book, my wife, Kimbra L. Fishel. What she did was a labor of love for the project as well as her husband. All of us thank you, Kim, for making our scribblings look professional!
To the authors: I thank each of you for the hard work, solid research, the following of format (even when you were sure you had a better way), and meeting the last -- if not the first -- deadline. Your expertise makes the book what it is. You are all professionals.
Thanks also to my aunt, Ruth Roman, who reviewed several chapters and suggested improvements in the writing. Thanks to the US Army Command & General Staff College for assembling the group of professionals who form the core of the authors and for the environment which encouraged this kind of effort. Thanks to Max Manwaring whose original research produced the theory that is articulated here as the "Manwaring Paradigm." Finally, thank you to the late General Maxwell R. Thurman whose question started it all.
