I am grateful to Andrew McNeillie for his unstinting support during the development of this book. I have also profited from the advice and expertise of Eva Nyika, Tom Perridge, Jacqueline Baker, and Jean Van Altena. The contributors suffered my cajoling emails with good grace. My final and largest debt is to my wife, Fiona.
