I’m most grateful to Louise Atkinson for her encouragement and understanding during the creation of this work and for tolerating my preoccupation with the Clinton scandals over many months.
Thanks to my parents and sister for their support during the development of this work. Several friends and colleagues offered helpful and constructive advice in the creation of this text and their input proved invaluable, particularly Mike O’Grady, Kevin Felstead and Steve Perrin. I am particularly grateful to Palgrave and its editorial staff, in particular Alison Howson.
I’d also like to express my appreciation to Tim Grace, Dan Needs, Rob Martell, Steve Martell, Barry Jervis and all those who took an interest in the progress of the research into the Clinton scandals.
