Let Us Fight as Free Men: Black Soldiers and Civil Rights

By Christine Knauer | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Writing a book is a marathon, not a sprint; and although it is a lonely struggle, one needs a lot of help from start to finish.

It has been a great privilege to work with the University of Pennsylvania Press, especially Bob Lockhart, Rachel Taube, and Alison Anderson, who helped tremendously on the last steps of the way.

I owe thanks to Professor Udo Sautter and Professor Georg Schild, who showed the patience and support that I needed. I also want to thank Professor Dieter Langewiesche and Professor Bernd Engler. The SFB 437 at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen provided me with a great environment for my research and the writing process.

I give heartfelt thanks to Professor Glenda Gilmore at Yale University, who took me under her wings when I was a mere visiting assistant of research at Yale. She has helped me in every possible way ever since. Her brilliance and selfless dedication are awe-inspiring.

This book would not have been possible without generous funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the German Historical Institute Washington, D.C., and the Truman Library.

The staff at all the libraries and archives I researched in over the years was invaluable for this project. I am greatly indebted to them. Robert Caulkins and Leslie R. Miller did tremendous jobs as my proxy researchers at the G. Libby Manuscript Collection, University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, and the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, University of Georgia, Athens, for which I owe them greatly.

I would also like to thank the panelists and audiences at the various meetings of the AHA, ASALH, OAH, ASA, Aim Gender, HOTCUS, UCD Clinton Institute of American Studies, and Heidelberg Spring Academy. There I was fortunate enough to meet and befriend Daniel Siemens, to whose knowledge of and dedication to history and writing I can only aspire.
