West Virginia Politics and Government

By Richard A. Brisbin Jr.; Robert Jay Dilger et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This introductory study of West Virginia politics and government is a collegial effort of four members of the Political Science Department at West Virginia University, each of whom has an abiding interest in various aspects of West Virginia politics and government. Each author initially drafted chapters in his areas of expertise and then solicited comments from the others. The final product thus reflects the ideas and research of all four authors. Richard Brisbin wrote the initial draft for the introduction and chapters 1, 5, and 9; Robert Dilger wrote the initial draft for chapters 4, 7, and 10; Allan Hammock wrote the initial draft for chapter 3; and Christopher Mooney wrote the initial draft for chapters 6 and 8. Richard Brisbin, Robert Dilger, and Allan Hammock drafted sections of chapter 2. Richard Brisbin and Robert Dilger codrafted chapter II.

We would like to acknowledge the extensive support provided by the Institute for Public Affairs at West Virginia University for research related to parts of the chapters on political culture, the legislature, the executive, the budgetary process, and the judiciary. Randy Moffett, a research assistant at the institute, performed various vital tasks with great efficiency, including management of the statewide survey of political attitudes cited by the authors in several chapters. Also, early drafts of portions of chapters 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9 were delivered as papers by the authors at the 1991 and 1992 meetings of the West Virginia Political Science Association. We would like to acknowledge the comments and suggestions we received at these meetings from various political scientists and public officials in the state.

The authors also have specific individual acknowledgments. Richard Brisbin thanks Joseph Patten, his former graduate assistant, for managing the surveys of judicial officials reported in chapter 9 and for performing
