Acknowledgments
We would like to thank each of our contributors—from both the rst andthe second editions—not only for their rich essays, but also for their invalu-able suggestions and advice as the volume unfolded. We would also liketo thank our students who, using this reader, educated us about how bestto present readings to interested but novice students of South Asia. GloriaRaheja offered specic feedback about the rst edition that helped us think about how to rethink some important issues for the second edition. PriyankaNandy, Ph.D. student in anthropology at Brandeis University, provided verywelcome administrative assistance. We thank with great warmth and appre-ciation our editor at Indiana University Press, Rebecca Tolen, for her patienceand encouragement. It was she who instigated this project, encouraged usto put together this new edition, and provided good critical feedback onthe contents while also giving us a free hand to develop the reader as wepleased. Any errors or omissions are our own and no one else’s. We wouldalso like to thank Laura MacLeod, Miki Bird, Nancy Lightfoot, Peter Froeh-lich, and Dan Pyle of Indiana University Press and freelance copy editorCarol Kennedy for their support and editorial wisdom.Members of our families contributed to this volume in various ways.Rick Rapfogel, Diane’s husband, provided critical assistance with technicaland photographic aspects of the book, and gave not only his time but alsoemotional support to the project. He and daughter Lucy spent a lot of solotime so Diane could hide away in the ofce to complete the work. Lucy letDiane have this time with only a few sad faces at bedtime. Ed, Rachel, andLauren were wonderfully generous in their lasting willingness to grant Sar-ah precious time to write and work while still always welcoming her home.
