“In particular, I wish to thank Ms. Cindy B. Nixon: The editorial treatment accorded my manuscript was, by any measure, meticulous: it reflected, on the one hand, an astute and intelligent reading of the themes I tried to develop — thus permitting an editorial penetration and unmuddling of my often-convoluted mode of expression; while, on the other hand, it was comparably laudable for its punctilious attention to details of stylistic convention. Any flaws the book may be deemed to have can hardly be attributed to Ms. Nixon’s domain.”
