Projecting the End of the American Dream: Hollywood's Visions of U.S. Decline

By Gordon B. Arnold | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

As with all such projects, the preparation and writing of this book benefited from the direct and indirect assistance of many people. I am grateful to Praeger and ABC-CLIO for their interest and support of this project since its inception several years ago, and particularly to Jane Messah, with whom I worked as the manuscript was being completed.

My colleagues at Montserrat College of Art were very helpful and supportive throughout the months of research and writing. I especially thank Kimberlee Cloutier-Blazzard and Erin Dionne, as well as Marjorie Augenbraum, Charles Boyer, Martha Buskirk, Ethan Berry, Rob Roy from the faculty of the college, as well as Dean of Academic Affairs Laura Tonelli and President Stephen Immerman.

My students at Montserrat College of Art have inspired me for many years. I thank them all for their keen observations and curiosity. Conversations with several former students were particularly helpful during the period in which I was working on the book and deserve special note. I offer special thanks to Katherine Irving, as well as to Katie Weismann, Meghan Hawkes, Katherine Romansky, and many others for their insights and engaging conversation.

This book is built upon the insights and observations of many other writers and scholars. I am grateful to several libraries, which have been instrumental in providing access to a wide range of materials available over the past few years. I especially thank Librarian Cheri Coe of the Paul M. Scott Library at Montserrat College of Art. In addition, the staffs of the Westborough Public Library, Shrewsbury Public Library, Northborough
