From the acknowledgments at the beginning of Charles W. Hedrick Jr.'s History and Silence: Purge and Rehabilitation of Memory in Late Antiquity:

I spend a great deal of time in this book disagreeing with Alan Cameron. I would regret our disagreements if they had not been so pleasurable and educational for me. Here I would like to thank him for his help. He read the manuscript and gave me supportive criticisms that saved me from many errors. He also let me see a manuscript draft of his forthcoming book, The Last Pagans of Rome. He is witty, erudite, engagingly polemical, and intellectually generous: an exemplary scholar.
I want to be like that. That's just cool.
