Elgar original reference
Edited by Chris Bilton and Stephen Cummings
Thanks to everybody at Edward Elgar for their work on this Handbook - to Francine OíSullivan for initiating the project and allowing us to tackle it in our way, to Tori Nichols for always having an answer to our questions, to our copy editor Amanda Picken, and to Madhubanti Bhattacharyya, our desk editor, for her painstaking attention to detail and her patience. Thank you to our former editor Rosemary Nixon for cradling many of the ideas we have developed here and to Professor David Wilson for a truly insightful foreword (well worth the detour to the next page of this book). This book is intended to be used, both in the classroom and in professional practice. As well as thanking our academic colleagues, we would like to give special thanks to the many students and professional managers whose involvement has helped to inform the development of our ideas and whose engagement we hope will continue to reshape their application. Finally, Chris and Steve would like to thank Anna and Noelle for their encouragement, forbearance, insight and indulgence.
