Excerpt

Work on this book was carried out under the auspices of the Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineering, University of California, Berkeley. I am most indebted to Harmer E. Davis, Director of the Institute, for his interest and support. I am grateful to Richard H. Holton, Director of the Institute of Business and Economic Research, University of California, for his active encouragement during the major part of the work on the book, and to Joseph W. Garbarino, the Institute's Acting Director in 1961-62, for further support during its final phases. The staffs of both institutes, in particular Miss Norene M. Jordan and Mrs. Maude Riley, were most coöperative in getting the manuscript ready for publication. I would not have been able to follow Dr. Johnson's maxim "a man will turn over half a library to make one book" without the efficient and invariably pleasant help of Miss Beverly Hickock and her colleagues of the Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineering Library.

My intellectual debts are large and widespread. I was fortunate to pursue my research in the stimulating atmosphere of the Berkeley campus and to be able to take advantage of discussions with many outstanding persons. A great deal of credit is due to Richard M. Zettel and Richard R. Carll of the Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineering, Julius Margolis of the School of Business Administration, University of California, and Roland N. McKean of the RAND Corporation, for the many valuable ideas and helpful criticisms they offered in discussion or through manuscript review. Useful suggestions were also made by a number of University of California colleagues, among them John P. Carter and Richard V. Mattessich of the School of Business Administration, Wolfgang S. Homburger and E. Farnsworth Bisbee of the Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineering . . .
