I would like to thank the publisher and my editor, Naomi Silverman. Without her encouragement, patience, care, and insight, I would not have completed this second edition. As Egon Guba used to tell me, “Judy, things take longer than they do” Naomi, thank you. In addition, several professors helped connect with many of the correspondents for this second edition. Thanks especially to: Donna Alverman, Maenette Benham, Elliot Eisner, Corinne Glesne, Larry Lesser, and Chris Pappas, among others. It also goes without saying that those who enabled the first edition remain the foundation of this one, including the correspondents and my mom and dad. This time, however, I also wish to acknowledge the children of my brother and sisters (John, Beth, and Lydia), because the two oldest, John and Matt, brought out the book to show off to their friends after Matt's rehearsal dinner party! Who would have thought this book to be prenuptial entertainment? Indeed, all of my siblings' children—Jan, Jeff, Mark, Charlie, Christopher, Ali, Lydia, and Jacque make me proud to be a teacher and learner. Finally, I must repeat myself. I remain sincerely beholden to the correspondents of both editions, without whose generosity this work would not exist.
