By Michael E. Stone | Go to book overview

Editor’s Preface

The production of this volume has drawn upon the talents and energies of many. The Editor wishes to express his thanks in particular to those authors who so patiently bore with his new dicisions, who agreed to revise, sometimes to rewrite, articles and sections of articles, and to all the authors without whose writing and generous participation the volume could not have come into being.

A good deal of the intensive work of this volume was carried out while the Editor was Fellow-in-Residence of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in 1980-81. His gratitude is expressed to the NIAS for the opportunities that year offered him.

M. E. Stone
