Once again a very, very special thanks goes to Herrington Bryce, who continues to serve as a colleague, a mentor, and a valued friend. The administrative support of Larry Pulley, Dean of the School of Business Administration at the College of William and Mary, is also acknowledged. I am also indebted to Eric Valentine, former publisher of Quorum Books, a former imprint of Greenwood Publishing Group, who provided an outlet for my ideas.
My thanks and appreciation as usual also goes out to my wife and the rest of the gang, Nandi, Dangaia, Sieya, and Kani, who have supported me during those times when it seemed as if all I ever did was read and sit in front of the computer. A special thanks goes out to Ronald, Jr., Marchet, Vellice, Shelley, and Sharisse.
