ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I WISH to give a special thanks to the hundreds of business managers and public-sector employees who helped me to make sense of the issues addressed in this book. Empirical research is always something of an Alice in Wonderland experience, and I thank you for letting me into your world.

The Robert Wood Johnson and Russell Sage Foundations gave generously to this project; I wish to thank Lewis Sandy and Eric Wanner in particular. Malcolm Litchfield at Princeton University Press has been a wonderful editor on every front. I also wish to thank the series editors, Theda Skocpol, Ira Katznelson, and Marty Shefter, for their enthusiasm.

I wish to thank John Ferejohn, Chris Rossell, Ceci Rouse, Bob Shapiro, and Duane Swank for assistance in the statistical investigation.
