This book would not have been possible without the generous support of many people and institutions. SUNY OER Services provided the financial support for this project with funds from New York State’s 2018–2019 budget allocation for Open Educational Resources. Our SUNY OER creation grant was supplemented by sabbaticals we both received from our home institutions, Inver Hills Community College and SUNY Empire State College. Without time and money this textbook would never have come about. During Nadine’s sabbatical, the Gender Studies Department at Lund University in Sweden provided a welcoming home in the final stages of preparing this book. We deeply appreciate the invaluable assistance of Allison Brown, digital publishing services manager at SUNY Geneseo. Allison helped keep the project on track, and her close eye for detail and expertise in digital publishing created a polished and professional product. We thank Kate Scacchetti (SUNY Empire State College) for expertly administering our budget and resources. The American Anthropological Association welcomed this open access publishing project under their auspices, and we truly appreciate the endorsement from the General Anthropology Division (GAD). SUNY Press skillfully aided us through the copyediting process. We would like to express our gratitude to Professor Deborah Amory (SUNY Empire State College), who contributed both inspiration and guidance from the project’s inception to its realization. Finally, a big thank you to all of the authors and reviewers for contributing their expertise and enthusiasm to this project.
