Acknowledgments First of all, I would like to thank Adrian Gregory, Eric Lohr, Michael Nolan, and Andrea Orzoff for their participation in this project. Series edi- tor Edward Beauchamp and Heather Staines, the editor at Greenwood Press, have been supportive and patient throughout this extended process and have my deepest appreciation. I would also like to thank the staff at the Institut fur Zeitungsforschung in Dortmund, Germany, for their assis- tance, and the Council on European Studies at Yale University for provid- ing access to the Sterling Memorial Library. My colleagues at Southern Connecticut State University—Stephen Amerman, Polly Beals, David Bello, Nikos Chrissidis, Steven Judd, Bruce Kalk, and Michele Thomp- son—offered constructive criticism at various stages of the project and have my thanks. I would also like to thank Southern Connecticut State University for providing funding for summer research and Dean Donna- Jean Fredeen for granting me release time to work on this project. Most important of all, I want to thank my wife, Mary, for her support, encour- agement, and help in transforming my German translations into readable English, and my son, Mack, for not caring about any of this and remind- ing me that there are some things more important than a missed deadline.
