I would like to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to all who have assisted me in preparing this study. I am particularly grateful to the United States Institute of Peace, which funded the study and to Dr. Carol Edler Baumann, director, and the others at the Institute of World Affairs of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who administered the grant. The views expressed in the study, of course, are mine only and do not necessarily represent the views of those organizations.
In developing material for this study, I interviewed a large number of people involved in various aspects of on-site inspection negotiation and implementation on a nonattribution basis. I would like to thank all of them for their generosity in making available their time and expertise. In addition, I would like to thank Dr. Edward Ifft, Colonel Paul Nelson, and Dr. Joseph P. Harahan from the U.S. On-Site Inspection Agency and arms control experts Louis Nosenzo, Dr. Victor Alessi, Alan Cameron, and Alan Labowitz of the DynMeridian Corporation, Alexandria, Virginia for their kind assistance in reading all or part of the text and providing their substantive and editorial comments. Mr. John Hardenberg also provided valuable help in developing graphic materials. While I benefitted greatly from the kind assistance of these and other individuals, I alone am responsible for any errors of fact, substance, and interpretation that may occur in the text.
