When we started to discuss the content and style of this book several years ago, we decided not to cover design aspects that had not been matured into a working telescope. However, some of the telescopes that we would like to feature because of their advanced design were still under construction, in particular the LMT/GTM in Mexico (Chap.  5) and ALMA in Chile (Chap.  6). Since then, our writing has been interrupted sufficiently by other duties, so that these instruments could be given the attention they deserve.
