A very special thank you goes to Herrington Bryce, who continues to serve as a colleague, mentor, and valued friend. The administrative support of Larry Pulley, Dean of the School of Business Administration at the College of William & Mary, is also acknowledged. I am also indebted to Eric Valentine, Publisher at Quorum Books, and all the others who encourage me to share my ideas with others.
My thanks and appreciation as usual also goes out to my wife, Serbrenia, and to our children, Nandi, Dangaia, Sieya, and Kani, who continue to show patience and support during my periods of writing. A special “keep movin’ forward” goes out to Ronald, Jr., Marchet, Vellice, Shelley, and Sharisse.
