I think this is an interesting point. It can be difficult to know the
level of contribution someone makes from the statement on the title page.

Many editors in books of the kind Facet publishes are responsible for far
more than arranging others' work. They may well have come up with the
concept for the book, pitched it to the publisher, commissioned the
chapter authors (sometimes offering a very specific brief, which includes
intellectual content), "tidied up" the material the chapter authors send
and so on and so forth. It's difficult to know where, in Darnton's
communication cycle, this type of editor fits. And questionable whether
cataloguers have sufficient information to make a judgment in each case.

Tricky, veeeery tricky.
