One of us is especially grateful to Joel Hellman, Dean of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, for their hospitality during the entire period of this project. Georgetown has provided a nurturing environment for the research underpinning this work and Clare Ogden, Fellows Administrator, provided efficient assistance on multiple occasions.

We are grateful to John Berger and Chloe Quinn at Cambridge University Press, and Elizabeth Stone at Bourchier, for managing the various aspects of this project, from helping us turn our ideas into a book project, to copyediting of the final manuscript. Nancy Ackerman from AmadeaEditing provided expert additional editorial help. Any limitations and imperfections in the book, however, are the responsibility of the authors.
