We are delighted and honored to express our gratitude and appreciation to those who provided support, assistance, and guidance to us at different stages in our editing of this book.
We are deeply grateful to Greg Goodman, as series editor, for his support, understanding, and consummate professionalism throughout the demanding process associated with the book’s ultimate production. We also are very appreciative of the excellent copyediting and formatting of the book by Peter Lang’s outstanding staff, Phyllis Korper and Sophie Appel. We extend our sincere appreciation to Chris Meyers and others at Peter Lang for their strong support and helpful guidance during the process of producing this book.
In Spring 2012, Robert received a Global Learning Grant from the Bagwell College of Education at Kennesaw State University, which provided one course release for him. The grant furnished him valuable time that contributed to the completion of the book. In addition, Catherine Kloud, our graduate research assistant at Kennesaw State University, assisted in generating a fine preliminary draft of the index of the book. We extend our deepest appreciation to Barbara Morton for producing the final index.
