This book is for my wife, Robin.

Acknowledgements

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Professor William Holmes, who aided and encouraged me immeasurably in the preparation of an earlier version of this book. I would also like to thank Professor Oscar Cargill, Mr. Granville Hicks, Mr. Scott Meredith, and Mr. Chris Kentera for the consideration they have shown me. Thanks are due my students, Anne Chapman and Joanne Rifenburg, for help in preparing the manuscript. Finally, this book would not have been possible without the constant help of my wife.
