Modernism and the Ideology of History: Literature, Politics, and the Past

By Louise Blakeney Williams | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

It is impossible to acknowledge all of the people who made this project possible. But I especially would like to thank David Cannadine; without his acute criticism and patient encouragement of the extra ordinarily lengthy first version of this book it would never have been completed. Laurence Dickey's fascination with intellectual history, his exacting academic standards, and his confidence in my abilities as a writer and thinker were invaluable in inspiring me to take the approach I have. Robert O. Paxton, R. K. Webb, J. W. Smit, and Steven Marcus all provided essential assistance by suffering through the first draft and making in sightful suggestions for its improvement. This book, however, would never have been begun without Stephen Koss. His sheer delight in all aspects of British history and culture was infectious, and his ability to combine academic rigor with humor and kindness was inspirational. His early death was truly a great loss to the historical profession. I also would like to thank the staff at the British Museum for their help in providing access to unpublished papers, and the librarians at the British Library, University of Keele, University of Hull, Cambridge University, Oxford University, Columbia University, and the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas, Austin all for their important assistance. Finally, I must thank my family and friends for their support through such a long project, the faculty of the History department at Central Connecticut State University for being friends as well as colleagues, and my parents for their unflagging interest in, and unquestioning encouragement of, everything I do. Last, but hardly least, none of this could have been done without Dr. No, who never once used that word about this book.
