We are very grateful to the many colleagues and friends who offered intellectual and practical support. In particular, we would like to thank Hilary O'Shea, at Oxford University Press, who first invited us to edit the Handbook and then patiently helped us see it through to publication; without her goodwill and encouragement, this book would not have been possible. Jenny Wagstaffe, also at OUP, worked hard on this project and diligently answered our many questions. Jeff New did a wonderful job of copy-editing. The anonymous readers for the Press offered many detailed and useful comments, which helped improve the final outcome. Daisy Thurkettle helped us edit the bibliographies with great efficiency and good cheer. Some of our chapters were first written in French, German, or Italian; it is a pleasure to thank Amélie Kuhrt, Ilaria Marchesi, Simone Marchesi, Esther Marion, and Francesca Spiegel for their excellent translations. Finally, we would like to thank the many scholars who wrote for this Handbook and who reminded us of the creativity, rigour, and intellectual openness that characterize Hellenic studies today. (p. vi)
