here. They had a year to get their original essays in, and then we had another year to get them edited. As it went, quite a few took more than a year to get their essays in, but we got them edited and submitted to Blackwell a couple of months before our deadline. Then there was the long process of getting the text laid out and copy-edited. We got the proofs around Christmastime last year and had to go through them and create an index. It was quite a process, involving a huge administrative effort to keep all the correspondence with these 54 people all over the world in order. I really enjoyed it though. And getting a few copies of it in the mail today is almost like seeing the birth of a baby after a long gestation and labor. If you're looking for gifts for Memorial Day or Flag Day, you can find it on Amazon here. The bad news is, it is only available in hardback at the moment, and as it is a reference book, they're not giving it away. List price: $199. Hopefully, a paperback version will be coming out.
