Doing Bad by Doing Good: Why Humanitarian Action Fails

By Christopher J. Coyne | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THIS BOOK IS SEVERAL years in the making, and its development has benefited from useful discussion with, and comments from, Pete Boettke, Art Carden, Tyler Cowen, Pete Leeson, Jayme Lemke, Adam Pellillo, Ben Powell, Bill Shughart, Virgil Storr, and Claudia Williamson. I would also like to thank my editor at Stanford University Press, Margo Beth Fleming, for her support, friendship, and guidance throughout this project.

Parts of this book were presented at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University (summer 2010); The Colloquium on Market Institutions & Economic Processes at New York University (fall 2010); and the Students for Liberty Webinar Series (spring 2012). I am grateful to organizers and to the participants for their comments and suggestions.

This book would not be possible without the generous support of several individuals and organizations. I would like to acknowledge the support of the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University, where I was a visiting scholar during the summer of 2010. Special thanks to Fred Miller, Ellen Paul, and Jeff Paul for arranging my visit and for creating an intellectually exciting environment during my time at Bowling Green. The Earhart Foundation and Kaplan Fund provided financial support during the summer of 2011 that allowed me to focus exclusively on this project. I am also grateful for the support provided by the F. A. Hayek Program for the Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Finally, I would like to thank my wife, Rachel, both for her support throughout this project and especially for reading and commenting on several earlier versions of the manuscript.
