To my parents, who taught me always to question everythingand everyone.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTSI thank Sarah Lawrence and Allison Neuburger at Palgrave Macmillan forhelping me realize thisfinal book in mytryptrychon the individual andsociety,followingTheManipulationofChoiceandTheIllusionofWell-Being, and I thank Palgrave Macmillan in general for allowing me todo them all in the way I envisioned. (A note to the studio: When you makethese three books into movies, I want this one split into two parts, just likeTwilight!)I also thank my good friends who stuck with me through the writingprocess, chief among them Bill Irwin, Lauren Hale, Carol Borden, AnitaLeirfall, and Heidi Page. If not for their constant support and encour-agement, you would not be reading this book today. (And did you reallywant to readTwilightagain?)Finally, I thank David Brooks, who got my dander up and inspired meto write this book. Although he ended up having the smaller role than Iimagined at the outset, I might not have written it at all without him, andfor that I am grateful.
