Acknowledgments An encyclopedia such as this is a group project. As editor I am merely like a con- ductor in an orchestra—guiding or directing gifted and talented musicians to con- struct a wonderful piece of music. Here, my task has been to work with the many contributors who wrote the essays, along with the staff at ABC-CLIO, to produce this encyclopedia. Specifically, I would like to thank Kevin Hillstrom and Barbara Patterson, who patiently and ably helped me produce this volume. All of these individuals get the credit for making this encyclopedia as strong as it is, and they cannot be thanked enough.
