Excerpt

I have so often expressed my appreciation to my wife for helping me write my books that I find it almost impossible to find new words in which to thank her for her part in the composition of the present work. Once again she has given me indispensable assistance in the course of my research, greatly improved my prose, and helped me maintain the strength to see a book through to completion. For all of this and more, I express my appreciation by once again dedicating a book to her, a better book, I hope, than the one I dedicated to her thirty years ago.

I also wish to express my gratitude to four friends. Professor Kenneth Lynn of The Johns Hopkins University, Professor Israel Scheffler of Harvard University, Professor Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., of The City University of New York, and Professor Margaret Wilson of Princeton University have very generously given the manuscript the benefit of their sympathetic yet searching criticism. The manuscript, I should add, has been typed with extraordinary diligence by Mrs. Patricia J. Fenner, to whom I am also grateful for checking the accuracy of quotations and for calling my attention to a number of awkward expressions in an earlier draft.
