ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank the Leitner Institute for International and Comparative Political Economy and the International Security Studies Institute at Yale University for their financial support. The Coca-Cola World Fund and the Smith Richardson Foundation also provided extensive financial support that allowed me to successfully undertake the fieldwork for this project. The Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University provided me an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment during a year-long fellowship that nourished the analysis and the writing of this book. The Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame and the department of political science at Penn State University have also supported this project. CEBRAP in Brazil and CSDS in India were generous enough to provide me with guidance on the ground.

The political science department at Yale was a wonderful home both intellectually and professionally. I would especially like to thank Frances Rosenbluth, Geoffrey Garrett, and Paul Kennedy for unstinting support and encouragement when I needed it most. I would also like to thank Susan Rose-Ackerman, Helen Milner, Bob Keohane, Paul Bracken, Jim Vreeland, Susan Stokes, Aleksandra Sznajder, David Samuels, Michael Coppedge, Scott Mainwaring, Frances Hagopian, Pierre Landry, John Roemer, Ellen Lust-Okar, Justin Fox, Peter Kingstone, Kurt Weyland, Ben Ross Schneider, Zhiwu Chen, Clive Thomas David Pervin, and Eric Crahan for supporting this project in different ways. In Brazil, David Fleisher, Fernando Limongi, Jose Guilhon, Roberto Troster, and Celina Souza helped me immensely to realize this project there. In India, I benefited from the generous support extended to me by Narendra Jadhav, Susan Thomas, Sasmita Palo, P. M. Patel, G. K. Prasad, Yogendra Yadav, and Sanjay Kumar. At Oxford University Press, I would like to thank David McBride for his support. I would also like to thank three anonymous referees for their comments and encouragement. They helped considerably improve this book. The final errors are, of course, all mine.

Several research assistants were invaluable in carrying out this project. For their outstanding research assistance I would like to thank Sergio Béjar, Chad Evans, Sandra Gomez, Jaqueline Araujo, Welton Luiz, Clarissa Deus, Marcelo Bernardes, Breno Ferreira Cypriano, Marina Brito Pinheiro, Feliciano Guimaraes, Kathakali Chanda, Arva Bhabhrawala, Brinda, and Bhoomi Shroff.

To my parents, brother, and dear friends who took calls from me from any time zone and any life zone—thank you, you have always made me speechless at my good
