It is with the deepest appreciation that I acknowledge the contributions to the present work of the following persons: My friend, Chuck Hamilton, for his tireless technical and editorial labors in turning a poorly typed manuscript into the finished book. To my friend, Dr. Paul Avrich, for reading the manuscript and making valuable suggestions. To my comrade, Murray Bookchin, who first encouraged me to undertake this project. Last, but by no means least, my wife Esther who scrupulously examined the manuscript as it was being written and detected many errors. Sam Dolgoff New York City January, 1974 (From:
