Hulmes, Prof. G. A. Harrison, Dr. R. Raychaudhuri, Dr. and Mrs. H. Kawakatsu, Prof. M. Cullen, Mr. D. Dickins and Dr. W. I. Stevenson and others at Longman who put all their energy into producing a splendid publication. In preparing the new version, we have been helped by Ms. C. Read, Dr. R. Davis-Floyd, and a number of anonymous reviewers. For further development of our ideas on religion we are grateful to Prof. E. L. Jones, Dr. D. Coleman, Mr. P. Stewart, Prof. E. Schlicht, Dr. J. Crook, and Dr. J. Odling-Smee. For help with library research we thank Sue Wilkinson and Alastair Smith. Word processing was admirably done by Mrs. V. de Newtown and Mrs. J. Thomas.
