(p. vii) Acknowledgments

In the work toward this handbook I appreciate the assistance and support of a number of people. First and foremost, thank you to Oxford University Press. In particular, thank you to my wonderful editor Abby Gross for guiding this project. A huge thank-you to Anne Dellinger, assistant editor in psychology and my daily go-to person on this project. Anne, you have done so much to help with this handbook, and I am deeply grateful to work with you. I also extend a hearty thank you to Jennifer Vafidis, editor for the Oxford Handbooks Online. Lori Stone, my former editor and great friend, thank you for your assistance at the beginning. Thank you to project managers, Shivaraman Ganesan and Kumudhavalli Narasimhan, at Newgen KnowledgeWorks. Shalen Lowell, continued appreciation for your outstanding research assistance. Tori Amos, as always, thank you for the inspiration. This handbook was six years (and a career) in the making, and seeing The Light Princess come to life on stage carried me through the final stages. Ultimately, this handbook is the result of the extraordinary work of its contributors—guiding lights in the qualitative community. I am honored and humbled to include your wisdom in this collection. I am overjoyed to feature the original artwork of my daughter Madeline Claire Leavy-Rosen on the cover. Madeline, you came up with a wonderful concept and created a stunning piece of art. You’re so talented! Mark, you are the world’s best spouse. Thank you for all that you do, including listening to me talk about this handbook for the last three years. Finally, qualitative research is something learned and practiced within community. Thank you to my professors and students—I have learned so much from each of you. (p. viii)
