We would very much like to thank the contributors to this volume—each of whom brought their expertise to bear on the question of race and war, and some of whom rewrote their chapter several times in order to integrate wider themes as the project developed.
We are also grateful to the scholars who offered critiques and contributed to the discussion along the way, especially Tony Badger, Gareth Davies, Mary Dudziak, Desmond King, Wilson Moses and Jay Winter.
This project is the result of a partnership between the Oxford Centre for Research in U.S. History and the Princeton History Department. Both universities awarded this project very generous grants so that we could bring the contributors together. The Rothermere American Institute provided us with an excellent venue for our main workshop.
Finally, our thanks to Susan Ferber, our editor at OUP, who gave us outstanding support throughout the process—as is her custom.
