The Deadly Sin of Terrorism: Its Effect on Democracy and Civil Liberty in Six Countries

By David A. Charters | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

By its very nature, an edited volume represents a collective effort, and this one is no exception. My thanks go first to the authors, for their work and for their patience with the lengthy editing process. If this volume makes an original and useful contribution to the study of political violence, the credit must go to them.

Many others had a hand in the production of the volume: Deborah Stapleford and Marion Jagoe stoically word-processed successive drafts. Linda Hansen meticulously created the index. Ronda Hallihan of Cummings Imagesetting typeset the camera-ready proofs effectively and efficiently. I am grateful for all of their efforts. Mildred Vasan and Karen Davis of Greenwood Press deserve special commendation for perseverance. I hope that their faith in the project--or at least their patience with it--is justified by the final product.

Finally, I owe a special debt of gratitude to the Donner Canadian Foundation, which provided a major grant to support this project. Without that funding, this project would not have been possible. The foundation has accepted graciously my explanations for the book's long gestation. I can only hope that they feel the final version was worth the wait.
