Although many individuals had an impact on this book, three scholars deserve special acknowledgment. Lynton K. Caldwell of Indiana University and Conrad Rosenberg of the Long Island Jewish Medical Center reviewed the manuscript and made invaluable suggestions that strengthened this final product. Marvin Henberg of the University of Idaho provided valuable insights, particularly for the discussion of individual responsibility in chapter 5.

Ann M. Miller, of Columbia University Press, did a superb job of editing and helped transform academic writing into a readable book. Karen Meyer deserves special thanks for the countless hours she put into research and preparation of the manuscript. I would also like to thank Carolyn Cradduck and the whole staff at the Program for Biosocial Research at Northern Illinois University. Finally, I thank Kate Wittenberg of Columbia University Press, without whose help and encouragement this book would not have been written. Although the final product is substantially stronger because of their contributions, any remaining shortcomings are my sole responsibility and should not reflect on any of these persons.

I also want to thank my wife, Mallory, for her patience and understanding, and Jeremy, Mai-Ling, and Maigin for being adaptive and largely cooperative.
