Acknowledgements [Page viii] The development of an international handbook is, inevitably, a collaborative effort and the editors would like to acknowledge the contributions made by a number of people.
First and most importantly, all of the authors, who are some of the most eminent and respected in the field, produced outstanding chapters and the editors would like to thank them for their expert scholarship, diligence and responsiveness.
Secondly, we would like to express our gratitude to the original commissioning editor of the handbook, Marianne Lagrange, and her assistant editor Saleha Nessa, for their support and informed guidance throughout the project, in addition to the excellent team at Sage who steered the handbook safely through to completion.
Thirdly, we were entirely reliant on the expert skills of the handbook editorial assistants, Lorraine Roe and Rachel Watson of the University of Sheffield, both of whom we would like to thank warmly for their effective administrative management of the project.
Finally, all of the chapters were reviewed by an Editorial Advisory Board of esteemed international scholars who completed this task with the utmost rigour and professionalism. We would like to acknowledge the excellent work and collective wisdom of this board and extend our sincerest thanks for their invaluable contribution to the handbook.
