I have three types of acknowledgments to offer. I would first like to acknowledge the valuable and insightful commentary on earlier drafts of this work provided by Professors Joachim Knuf and Ernest Yanarella.
I must also offer an acknowledgment to Professor Enid Waldhart. Enid, often unknowingly, provided me with continued assistance in the motivational process so essential to the production of any scholarly work.
I must also note that a portion of the research expenses for this project were covered by the Wayne Brockriede Memorial Research Grant, presented by the American Forensic Association.
