Many people have assisted me in the preparation of this manuscript. I hope that I have remembered all of them. Some of these people may not even realize that they were helping with the book, since their comments were on the article in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology in which I first introduced the proposal that forms the basis of this book. In alphabetical order, these people are Prof. Francis Allen of the University of Florida, Prof. Ronald Allen of Northwestern University, Prof. Joshua Dressler of Wayne State University, Prof. John Garvey of the University of Kentucky, Prof. Yale Kamisar of the University of Michigan, Prof. Michael Klarman of the Univesity of Virginia, Krystie Herndon, Secretary, Indiana University, Prof. Joseph Hoffmann of Indiana University, Prof. Lauren Robel of Indiana University, Prof. George Rutherglen of the University of Virginia, Moira Squier, Student Research Assistant, Indiana University, and Prof. Robert Weisberg of Stanford University.
Chapter 5, the comparative chapter, required more extensive assistance from the following people: ( Australia) Peter Waight, Senior Lecturer in Law, Australian National University; ( England) David Feldman, Reader in Law, University of Bristol; ( France) Richard Frase, Professor of Law, University of Minnesota; ( Germany) Thomas Weigand, Professor of Law, University of Cologne; Volker Röben, Fellow, Institute for International Law, Kiel; Antje Petersen, Student Research Assistant, Indiana University; ( Italy) Lawrence Fassler, Attorney, Shearman and Sterling, New York.
Finally, two people whose assistance went far beyond the call of duty: Professor William Stuntz of the University of Virginia and Professor Gerard Lynch of Columbia University.
