This volume began life as a Workshop on International Regulatory Competition and Coordination, organized jointly by the School of Law, University of Warwick, and the Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, New York. The Workshop was held at Radcliffe House at the University of Warwick in July 1994. We were fortunate to have the generous financial assistance of the Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Center for Corporate Governance of the Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School and the Research and Innovations Fund of the University of Warwick.
We would like to acknowledge the large number of people who have provided us with advice, and invaluable forms of encouragement as the Workshop project has developed into this publication. They include Gavin Anderson, Davina Cooper, Yves Dezalay, Morten Hviid, Henk de Jong, Mike McConville, John McEldowney, Frank Macchiarola, Marius Messer, Han Somsen, Joel Trachtman, Geoffrey Underhill, and Geoffrey Wilson. We are grateful for the administrative support, in the form of a grant, provided by the Legal Research Institute of Warwick University. We would like to thank Barbara Gray, Valerie Innes, and Jill Watson for the administrative help.
We would like to thank all authors of papers, commentators, and chairs of sessions for their contributions at the Workshop. We are particularly grateful to the contributors whom we have worked with over many months before and after the Workshop to produce this collection.
We would like to thank Kristen Roberts and Toby O'Reilly for their help in preparing this volume. We give special thanks to Rhian Whitehead who did much of the difficult work of preparing the final submissions of disks and paper copy by contributors for submission to the Press. Finally, we would like to extend our thanks to our editors, Richard Hart and Elissa Soave.
