A Theory of Public Opinion

By Francis Graham Wilson | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The author wishes to acknowledge the generous assistance he has received in the preparation of this manuscript He is particularly indebted to the editors of Thought, The American Political Science Review, The Journal of Politics, and The Review of Politics for permission to republish material on the theory of public opinion which has already appeared in those journals. There is a lesser indebtedness to other journals which have published articles bearing only in part on public opinion, and from which numerous ideas have been taken. Librarians at the University of Illinois and Notre Dame University, as well as members of the staff of the Library of Congress, have been notably helpful in the extended but intermittent work of the author on this subject. The author has, of course, benefited from the criticisms of a number of readers who have offered suggestions for improvement, but more particularly he is appreciative of the assistance he has received from Dean J. W. Peltason of the University of Illinois, and the Reverend J. T. Durkin, S.J., of the Georgetown University Graduate School. Much of the work on the manuscript was done during a sabbatical leave granted by the University of Illinois, and the Graduate College of the University provided a grant at one stage in the preparation of the manuscript. Finally, it would be difficult to make an adequate statement of appreciation for the assistance and encouragement the author has received from Dr. David S. Collier, Executive Director of the Institute for Philosophical and Historical Studies, and from some of those associated with him.
