I wish to express my appreciation and gratitude to those who made this work possible. To Professor Grace Saltzstein, whose guidance, patience, and support during this project were invaluable. To Professor Barbara Sinclair for her critical evaluation and useful comments. To Professor Shaun Bowler for his constant encouragement and practical attitude about completing the project. To Professor Will Moore for his assistance in the analysis of the data during his own hectic moving preparations.

I wish to thank Joan Littlejohn and Aline Messer for their support, assistance, and friendship during my years at U.C. Riverside. I also wish to thank my new department colleagues at North Dakota State University, including Jill Blazek, Bob Wood, John Monzingo, and Curtis Amlund for their encouragement and assistance.

Special thanks are due to “the cohort” composed of Greg Thorson, Olof Ronny Lindström, David McCuan, Chris McHorney, Carole Kennedy, Don Matthewson, and Craig Arceneaux for their encouragement and friendship during the years of graduate school and beyond.

My deepest appreciation is reserved for my family, including my husband Steve Stambough, my mother Rose, sisters Linda and Stephanie, brother Mike, brothers-in-law Ron and Gary, and my nieces Kayleigh and Veronica. Their encouragement has been a constant in my life. Furthermore, I would like to thank my in-laws, especially Angie, Joe, and Nancy.
