Encyclopedia of Mexico: History, Society & Culture - Vol. 1

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Coordinating the Encyclopedia of Mexico was among the most demanding projects I have ever undertaken. Without the help and support of countless friends and colleagues here in Chicago and throughout the world this project simply would not have been possible. To fully acknowledge the help of each and every person who contributed to this project would be impossible. I hope that for the unnamed, unsung contributors to this project this general statement of gratitude will suffice, even if I know that it cannot.

Thanks certainly will seem superfluous for the staff at the Chicago office of Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers, since they alone know the kinds of sacrifices they have made for this project. I owe a particular debt of gratitude to my commissioning editor Robert M. Salkin, and I hope that the time, energy, and editorial insight that he has put into this project is reflected in the final product.

The editorial advisory committee of this project comprised a community of scholars in the best sense of the term. Its members’ editorial and moral support—as well as their sometimes astringent commentary—helped give this project its sense of vision and critical edge. I owe a special debt of gratitude to William O. Autry, Elizabeth Bakewell, Thomas Cummins, Guillermo de la Peña, Ben Fallaw, Gil Joseph, Alan Knight, Claudio Lomnitz, Roger Rouse, Susan Schroeder, Patricia Seed, Emily Socolov, Eric Van Young, Mary Kay Vaughan, and Richard Warren. Going far beyond what was required of them in this project, they became mentors and friends.

This project also drew on a “kitchen cabinet” of informal editorial advisers—authors, translators, and friends who provided invaluable editorial advice and support. Aside from myself and the staff at Fitzroy Dearborn, Jessica Johnson and Lorena Scott Fox probably have seen more of this project than any other people. They were far more than extraordinary translators. Putting in long hours for minimal reward, they also provided detailed, incisive editorial comments, helped me find other authors and translators, and provided much-needed moral support. During the early stages of this project, I also received invaluable translation assistance from Cinna Lomnitz and Stacy Hoult, both of whom helped me line up other authors and translators.

Among hundreds of authors working on this project, I received particularly valuable help from Christon I. Archer, Clara Bargellini, William H. Beezley, Frances F. Berdan, Stanley Brandes, Jane Bussey, Barry Carr, Sarah L. Cline, Linda A. Curcio, Sandra M. Cypess, Seth Fein, María Fernández, Jonathan Fox, Alejandra García Quintanilla, Pilar Gonzalbo Aizpuru, Inés
