A considerable number of kind people and institutions have aided in the preparation of this book. The Council of the Humanities, Princeton University, provided release from teaching responsibilities in 1957-58, and the Princeton Research Committee contributed generous financial support. We are pleased to acknowledge the help received from the research papers of graduate students, notably James S. Bolen, John J. Bucholtz, Robert D. Burrowes, Jameson Doig, Selwyn G. Geller, Donald A. Slater and Joel Sterns. Helen Fairbanks and Cyril Roseman did much of the tedious work of checking documentation against original sources. We are under special obligation to Betty Ruth Waldman and Helen S. Wright for typing and retyping the manuscript.
Various chapters draw material from Free Government in the Making ( Oxford, 1949; 2nd edition 1956) and Security Through Freedom ( Cornell University Press, 1955). Material from articles published in the American Historical Review, American Political Science Review and Political Science Quarterly is also included. To all these institutions, publishers and individuals we are profoundly grateful.
