ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

All the papers assembled in this volume were presented at the Fifteenth Annual Conference on the Political Economy of the World-System, held at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, March 28-30, 1991. I would like to thank all the participants, including those not represented here, for making the conference a lively and intellectually stimulating experience.

Organized under the auspices of the Political Economy of the World-System section of the American Sociological Association, the conference was generously supported by the School of Hawaiian, Asian, and Pacific Studies, the departments of Political Science and Sociology, and the Pacific-Asian Management Institute of the University of Hawaii and by the Institute for Economic Development and Policy of the East-West Center. I am particularly grateful to my colleagues on the organizing committee--Hagen Koo, Mimi Sharma, Alvin So, Bob Stauffer, and Terence Wesley-Smith for their invaluable assistance. Thanks are also due to Yvonne Yamashita of the University of Hawaii Conference Center and to Alyson Turner for their help in organizing the conference; to the Asian Studies support staff, especially Jane Martin, Linda Miyashiro, Iris Odo, and Wendy Taira; and to Patricia Lane for assistance in editing this volume.
