(p. v) Acknowledgements

Editing a volume of this scale is an intensely collaborative process. We are indebted to all the contributors for their support, collegiality, and cooperation throughout this process. We appreciate the quality of their work and the time dedicated to producing this volume in already crowded schedules. David Musson at Oxford University Press was a pleasure to work with and a source of great wisdom and sound advice. We also acknowledge the contributions of Emma Booth, Rachel Platt, and other colleagues at the Press who all played their parts with professionalism and unstinting conscientiousness. Savita Kumra would like to dedicate this book to her parents: her mother, who though sadly no longer with us will always be a great source of inspiration and strength, and her father who challenged gender stereotypes on a daily basis with calm determination. Thanks also to her sons Kieran and Aron and husband Julian for their constant love and support. She would like to acknowledge the support of colleagues at Brunel Business School and also those in the BAM GiM SIG who have been a constant source of friendship, support, and professional inspiration. Ruth Simpson would like to thank colleagues at Brunel Business School for their support and dedicates this book to her children Rachel, Matthew, and Alex and grandchildren Josh and Molly. Ron Burke would like to acknowledge the support provided by dear colleagues, including Tamara Weir, Carol McKeen, Mary Mattis, Debra Nelson, Susan Vinnicombe, and Lyn Davidson. He would like to thank York University for supporting his contributions and he would also like to thank Savita and Ruth for their leadership on the project. It is also his hope that his daughters, Sharon, Rachel, and Liane benefit from our work. (p. vi)
