    Acknowledgements

    As always, a large number of people have participated in the writing of this book. NA would particularly like to thank Baz Kershaw, Maria Shevstova and Nigel Whiteley for their guidance in new territory. He would also like to pay tribute – again – to the extraordinary intellectual atmosphere of the University of Lancaster.

    BL has found discussions of various audiences with Gaynor Bagnall, Tony Kearon, Tony King, Jason Rutter and Greg Smith of great help, particularly in the stimulation of ideas and the comparison of different contexts and approaches. Thanks as ever to Bernadette Oxley, James Oxley-Longhurst and Tim Oxley-Longhurst for performances, audience activity and much more.

    Dedication

    For Harry Patterson and to the memory of Betty Patterson and for Bernadette, James and Tim
