Mark Stoneman is a first-class editor, as I had the chance to observe closely when he edited a set of thirty-six blog posts written by a very international set of graduate students, postdocs, and faculty for a conference. By the time he finished editing the essays, each one was an exemplar of accessible scholarship. We were working under a tight deadline, and I appreciated Mark’s calm, wry demeanor as well as his timeliness. I recommend him without hesitation.
