Uneasy Alliances: Race and Party Competition in America

By Paul Frymer | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

FALU BAKRANIA, Tom Kim, and Corey Robin have all immeasurably influenced the way that I think about politics and political science. They have also read numerous chapters of the book and have offered a great many critical suggestions on both specifics and the broader scope of the manuscript. Jon Oberlander has been a constant friend, supporter, adviser, and constructive critic of the project. Among my graduate student colleagues at Yale, Gordon Lafer was enormously helpful with many of the ideas structuring chapter 5. Terri Bimes, Jon Cowden, Heather Elliott, David Hughes, Phil Klinkner, Kristin Madsen, Jon Mermin, Cass Moseley, Rachel Roth, Eric Schickler, and Eve Weinbaum all offered advice and friendship during the course of graduate school and afterward. GESO, the graduate student labor union at Yale, not only helped make it possible for me to survive graduate school, but also taught me the possibilities of “organizing” for political battles.

This book is a major revision of my doctoral dissertation.

At the University of California at Los Angeles, Scott James and Pam Singh have been supportive and intellectually engaging during our frequent dinner conversations about this project and about the broader ideas intrinsic to the American political development literature. Shana Bass and Adam Simon read and improved various chapters and provided helpful suggestions throughout. Joel Aberbach, Kathy Bawn, Jim Desveaux, Kevin Finney, Frank Gilliam, Neal Jesse, David Karol, Mike Thies, Brian Walker, and John Zaller read specific chapters and offered notable advice for various aspects of the project. Adam Simon and Jessica Villardi were extremely helpful with the maps and computer graphics. Linda Choi and Michael Hockman provided more than a year of helpful research assistance. Also providing research assistance for shorter periods of time were Bobby Amirian, Michelle Gu, Amy Hu, An Lee, and Daryl Singhi. Jim Bondurant, Jose Cue, Kathy Escobedo, Cora Gamulo, Nancy Gusten, Tarry Kang, and Ashley Wilson all made it much easier to complete the project at UCLA. Outside of UCLA, both David Plotke and Rick Valelly generously read and offered very helpful and constructive comments on the manuscript. I worked with John Skrentny for an awfully long time on an article about
