A Force Profonde: The Power, Politics, and Promise of Human Rights

By Edward A. Kolodziej | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This volume owes much to many people. Substantial financial support was received from the Ford Foundation, through a grant for interdisciplinary global studies, and from three units at the University of Illinois: International Programs and Studies, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Political Science. The editor and authors express their gratitude, respectively, to the heads of these units—Associate Provost Earl D. Kellogg, Dean Jesse G. Delia, and Professor Peter F. Nardulli.

The authors were especially helpful in the eleventh hour by cutting their manuscripts to conform to the tight word limits set by the press, no easy demand to make, nor one easily executed given the high quality of the original papers in their full-blown form and the competing pull of other projects that needed attention.

All the contributors wish to express their appreciation to the press, notably Peter Agree, Alison A. Anderson, and their talented editorial staff, for perfecting the manuscript over the long and exacting review process. Two anonymous reviewers engaged by the press also helped immeasurably to improve the volume. We hope they agree that the final product was strengthened by their suggestions, although neither the editor nor the authors always followed their thoughtful advice.

Merrily Shaw was indispensable in editing and preparing the manuscript for publication through its several revisions. Mary Anderson made an
