It is always harder to follow up after theoretical threads that bind together chapters of an edited manuscript, as opposed to a sole or co-authored volume. This introductory chapter provides an overview of the structure of this book, together with some operational definitions and the reasons behind ideas presented in various chapters. Since our book is divided into three parts, the introductory chapter provides readers with some conceptual scaffolding behind subsequent chapters and the rationale behind grouping certain concepts in the respective segments of this volume.
