I owe my thanks and acknowledgments to a number of publishing houses who have allowed me to use portions of books or articles protected by copyright. The names of the publishers are given in connection with the excerpts in the body of the book and are again given in the table of contents. I therefore content myself here with a general word of appreciation of the courtesy.

I wish, also, to thank Dr. Theodore C. Pease for his efficient assistance in the preparation of the volume.
