Acknowledgements

A great many people have, in various ways, helped to shape this book. We are indebted to colleagues, friends and students too numerous to mention for what they have taught us during friendly discussions, whether in seminars or in less structured contexts.

A personal thank-you, however, must go to Malcolm Coulthard for his continuing support in all sorts of ways; to Michael Hoey for being both friend and teacher; to Chris Kennedy for his encouragement; and to Gillian Brown, Viggo Hjørnager Pedersen and John B. Thompson for reading and commenting on earlier versions of chapter 2. To Enid Rose-Betts, Jane Gardiner and Susanna Lu, a special thank-you for their tolerance, particularly of word-processing blunders.

We are grateful for the interest and practical help we have received from the COBUILD team, in particular from Gwynneth Fox and Ramesh Krishnamurthy.

We thank staff at Routledge for their help and patience, in particular Claire L’Enfant, who commissioned this book, and Julia Hall who saw it through with the aid of Alison Foyle.

We are very grateful indeed to all the children who answered Murray Knowles’ questions about what they like to read, and to the teachers who encouraged them to do so. We are especially grateful to Patrick, Claire and Katie Mary Knowles, and to Tomas, Amy and Nils Downes for guiding us back to their books, and to Stella Knowles and David Downes for their love and support.

We thank the following publishers and individuals for permission to use work for which they hold the copyright: Blackwell Publishers for permission to print Table 1.2 from Ideology and Modern Culture by John Thompson 1990.
