The editors acknowledge with great appreciation the contributions of people whose generosity helped to make this book possible. Patricia Dyer shared her editorial insightfulness, created two of the images for the book, and provided invaluable technical assistance in preparing the manuscript for the publisher; her patience throughout the process of the work on this book is greatly appreciated. Noel Keith provided help with sampling and shaping ideas, along with an abundance of encouragement and inspiration when needed. Sarah Auerswald assisted in gaining the permission to republish two of her father's papers in this volume. Barbara Anthonson contributed generously of her time and computer knowledgeability in helping to ready the manuscript for publication. Editor George Zimmar, Assistant Editors Shannon Vargo and Luciana Cassano, and Production Editor Richard Rothschild did a superior job of editing our work and supporting us through its production. We wish to thank Mr. Zimmar and the staff at Brunner-Routledge for being willing to take on the publication of this book in light of its counter-cultural bent.
