Preparing for Power: America's Elite Boarding Schools

By Peter W. Cookson; Caroline Hodges Persell | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THE STUDY of boarding schools has been an exciting and rewarding challenge. One of the most gratifying aspects of our research has been the many supportive people who have helped us through each part of our work. We are deeply indebted to them. To express our appreciation of them publicly is one small way of acknowledging their varied and crucial contributions. They deserve special recognition for sharing with us their time, energy, and knowledge.

A number of individuals helped us with data gathering and management, coding, keypunching, computer analysis, and typing. They include: Daniel Cohen, Lisa Eig, Charlotte Fischer, Annie Geo, Nancy Harris, Patricia Hartman, Karen Helsing, Kathleen Helsing, Bert Holland, Nilma Maichin, Kathleen Montgomery, Pam Pozarny, Sheri Prupis, Michael Putnam, Yolanda Romero, Martin Rouse, George Sharrard, SoHo Typing, and Martha Wolf.

It has been our good fortune to share our work with many colleagues at New York University and elsewhere. We have benefited greatly from their constructive suggestions and encouragement. Needless to say, they cannot be held responsible for the way we have or have not utilized their comments. In particular, we want to thank Philip Altbach, Mordecai Arieli, Christopher F. Armstrong, E. Digby Baltzell, Lloyd Barenblatt, Basil Bernstein, Steven Brint, Roger Bullock, Randall Collins, Paul Cullinan, Kevin
