Environmental Politics in Japan, Germany, and the United States

Acknowledgments

Many individuals, far more than I could possibly list, deserve thanks for the help they have given me. There are literally hundreds of people living in many different countries who shared their time with me for interviews, to discuss ideas, to share documents, to tour me through energy facilities or polluted areas, to read drafts of this manuscript, or comment on presentations of my research. It is impossible to thank all of these people individually, but I do thank each and everyone. Many are colleagues and good friends.

There are, however, a number of people who I would like to give special thanks to; these are the people who I consider my mentors and without whose encouragement, prodding, advice, letters of recommendation, and constructive criticism this project would never have been realized.

I am saddened that Jake did not live to see the book published; he was a true inspiration as a pioneer in the field of environmental politics. I am also immensely grateful to my many mentors and sponsors overseas. These include Ikei Masaru, Tsuneyuki Morita, Akio Igarashi, Martin Jäanicke, and Josée van Eijndhoven. Several others also provided substantial support of various kinds. These include Hiroshi Ohta, Yasuko Kameyama (formerly, Kawashima), Thomas Princen, John Kingdon, Susan Pharr, Lutz Mez, Alexander Carius, Helge Joergens, Kirsten Joergensen, and Kirsten Dellar.

The assistance provided by Katsura Fujiike with assembling a bibliography and editing the manuscript was indispensable. Sulan Chen helped put together the tables and graphs in this book. Anna Brettell did the painstaking work of putting together the index. My special appreciation goes to Linda Randall, who is certainly one of the world's speediest and efficient copy-editors, and John Haslam, who is a terrific editor.

My thinking as a comparative environmental politics scholar was strongly affected through my work with the Social Learning Project (led
