Consensus, as a decisionmaking process, has been developing for centuries.
Many people, in diverse communities, have contributed to this development.
From them, we have borrowed generously and adapted freely.
The following friends previewed drafts of this book and have contributed
their ideas and suggestions as it developed. Their contributions and support
are greatly appreciated.
