The author and designer would like to thank all of the people who contributed to the preparation of this book. Without them, the task would have seemed more difficult and perhaps completely implausible. In particular, Jacques Derrida's generous and careful assistance was much appreciated, at an early and later stage of the production. The designer would like to thank Andrea Levy, Judy Groves and Oscar Zarate for advice and help with research, and David King for permission to use images of Jean Genet and Emma Goldman derived from photos in his archive. Also, thanks to Ian Hooper and Nadina Al Jarrah for the kind loan of photographic equipment.
