a little snippet

So if you will have to write an introduction to a book project on which you are an editor, take my advice: when you respond to the authors of contributed chapters, capture all of the points that resonated with you, and key points of interest.  Then as you are working away, start filing those thoughts in a document.  This will make writing the introduction so much easier!

We decided to do it the hard way.  We are writing the introduction after the fact.  In a few cases, I do have email descriptions to fall back on.  And I guess it doesn't hurt me to review the chapters one more time...
