(p. v) Acknowledgments

Nancy Toff of Oxford University Press invited us to coedit this volume, and we are grateful for her energetic support of the project. Sonia Tycko, Associate Editor at Oxford, patiently stewarded the manuscript and its editors. The volume’s copyeditor, the indefatigable Glenn Novak, read the manuscript with an eagle eye and saved the authors from numerous errors. Aaron Murray oversaw the final stages of production with a close eye on the calendar and uncommon good humor. Special thanks are also due to the Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture at the University of Chicago and to the Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture at the Newberry Library. Their joint sponsorship of the Chicago Conference on the American Revolution allowed the volume authors to share and critique early drafts of these chapters. Our collegial, freewheeling exchanges served as a model of scholarly exchange, and greatly improved the resulting volume. Brandeis University and Florida State University each provided both financial and logistical support. Finally, we thank the contributors for their generosity, their capacious intellects, and their good humor. It has been a genuine pleasure to explore America’s revolutions in the company of this remarkable group. (p. vi)
