I should like to thank the usual suspects who have made the completion of this book possible: Nick Scarle for drawing the diagrams; Andrew Mould for taking on board a 'research monograph' with limited sales potential; Anja Scheffers for kindly letting me use her photographs; and the University of Manchester for granting me a semester's research leave. As always, special thanks go to my wife, and to my two youngest children for letting me use my PC between sessions of Battle for Middle-Earth, Civilization, and Myst V: End of Ages.
