Author notes

Earlier versions of some of these essays were presented at a meeting of the Middle East Studies Association of North America, San Diego, CA, 18–21 November 2010. I wish to thank all contributors to this collective effort for their outstanding teamwork, and Peter Sluglett and Kaveh Ehsani for their help and comments.
