There are many people to thank for their contributions. Eliot Werner, formerly at Plenum, played an important role in the planning of the project. The Advisory Board made valuable suggestions about the outline for the culture entries and possible topics to be covered in the thematic essays, and suggested potential authors. The editors were responsible for the final selections of authors and for reviewing the manuscripts. For managing the project at HRAF, we are indebted to Jo-Ann Teadtke. We thank Teresa Krauss for overseeing the production process at Kluwer/Plenum and Tracy van Staalduinen for her efficient handling of the production of this Encyclopedia. Finally, and most of all, we thank the contributors for their entries. Without their knowledge and commitment, this work would not have been possible.
