Occasionally as scientists we have the good fortune to stumble onto problems whose significance and solution turn out to be more far-reaching than may have been anticipated at the time. Such proved to be the case in my own experience with unimolecular and electron-transfer reactions and, to a lesser degree, with a few other problems as well. I am particularly indebted to the organizers of this issue for their recognition of 35 years of “RRKM” theory and 30 years of the electron-transfer theory. Also, I am especially indebted to my many colleagues who have contributed to the field and to this issue.
