Preface xxi It was during the MODNET Conference on Model Theory in An- talya, November 2–11, 2006, that I placed the first chapter of the book on the Internet. MODNET (Marie Curie Research Training Network in Model Theory and Applications) is funded by the Euro- pean Commission under contract no. MRTN-CT-2004-512234. In July 2007 and July 2008 I enjoyed the hospitality of Mathe- matical Village in S ¸irince, Turkey, built and run by Ali Nesin. I started writing this book in Caf´ e de Flore, Paris—an extreme case of vanity publishing! Since then, I continued my work in many fine establishments, among them Airbr¨ au, das Brauhaus im Flughafen in Munich, Cafe del Turco in Antalya, L’authre Bistro on rue des Ecoles, and Caf´ e des Arts on place de la Contrescarpe in Paris—I thank them all.
