    A book like this one cannot be written without the help, support, and collaboration of many persons. We are most grateful to the authors for their enthusiasm in contributing to this volume, and the reviewers for devoting their valuable time to helping further improve the quality of the contributions. We also thank Julia Khorshed for helping with the preparation of the LATEX typescript and Heike Antoni and Désirée Nie?en for proofreading. Finally, this book would not have seen the light of a well-illuminated desk without the excellent work of Katie Metzler and the Sage publishing team who supported the idea for this book from the beginning. We thank them very much for their enthusiasm and support.
