MANY individuals contributed to the production of this volume. We would especially like to acknowledge the support of Adam Roberts, Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at Oxford University; Henry Hardy of Oxford University Press; and Shari Rogge-Fidler. We would also like to recognize the support this project has received from Sullivan & Cromwell, whose staff and resources provided valuable assistance to us.
While this book was in the production process, Dr John Vincent, Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, unexpectedly died. The editors owe John a great debt of gratitude for his encouragement and assistance on this volume. His help to us was only a small example of the resourcefulness, talent, and caring that he exhibited in all his endeavours. John was a great scholar, teacher, colleague, and friend to many people. To John's family we express our profound sympathy. On behalf of those who knew and enjoyed John professionally and personally, we deeply regret the loss of this special man. We are fortunate that he left us some fruits of his talent and the example of his integrity, charm, and affection. His memory will long be very special to the people he touched.
