The biggest debt of gratitude for this volume belongs to the many authors of the sets of criteria entered into this volume. Without their effort in assembling the data, formulating criteria, publishing and disseminating this information, this volume would not be possible. I would like to thank Jan Toms, Sue Champa, and Adrienne Childs for their secretarial help. Zachary Lerner assisted in literature research and the word derivations from Greek. My colleagues, Robert Friedland, Henry Kaminski, Bashar Katirji, David Preston, and Barbara Shapiro gave important advice and encouragement. The staff and editors at Humana Press are also acknowledged for their time and patience and with nurturing this project to fruition.
