    I wrote this in troubled times. I am the more grateful to the people who helped me through. Among them are remarkably dedicated and skilled members of what remains of the National Health Service. We all stand in their debt.

    Two people supported me throughout. At York, David Edwards encouraged and consoled me, and convinced me I could finish the book. Without him, it might not have been written. And at Marist, JoAnne Myers emailed almost daily with words of comfort, comments on theory, and news of The Biggest Cupboard In The World. David's and JoAnne's greatest feat was to restore laughter to my life. Both have given far more than conventional notions of friendship suggest. I owe them a massive amount.

    The Political Studies Association Women's Group has been an important, if occasional, part of my life and work. Of its early members I thank especially Sally Jenkinson, Elizabeth Meehan, and Ursula Vogel. They have shown me the warmth anyone who knows them would expect, and listened with patience as I wandered the highways and byways of feminist thought. They bear no responsibility for views expressed, crimes committed, here.

    I have known also the kindness of strangers. From the streets, cafes, and shops of York to as far as the Internet runs, people have come to my aid. They are harbingers of a better way of life. Not only I, I hope, know that.

    Sage make publishing a pleasure, insofar as that can be done. Patiently they endure my belief that I am the only author in the world. They have worked like a collective on this book, and I thank them all.

    There are communities, social strata, milieus, whose women do not study. Certainly they do not study for years, with no end in view. My mother stood with me through the uneasy laughter; she supports me still. This book is for her.
