Competitors in Alliance: Industry Associations, Global Rivalries, and Business-Government Relations

By Andrew A. Procassini | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I am truly thankful for the time and talents of the many individuals who helped create this book. Although as the author, I must be solely responsible for its contents, I could not have completed these efforts without the help of others. Among them I would first point to those whose extensive reviewing and suggestions were invaluable. They were Andre Delbecq, Jeffrey Hart, Hunter Hale, Dan Okimoto, Michael Borrus, Ed Steinmueller, Tom Howell, John Stern, John Young, Warren Davis, Jerry Arnold, and Gunther Moller. I especially wish to thank Dr. Philip A. Mundo of Drew University, not only for his review and suggestions, but also for his authorship of research reports describing specific associations' organizations, which were incorporated, with few modifications, into Chapters 7, 8, and 10.

I also wish to thank my assistants, Helen Harris and Robin Mahan, who worked hard to produce the interim, as well as final, versions of the manuscript. I am also grateful to my publisher, Eric Valentine, and others at Quorum Books, including Marsha Goldstein, Elisabetta Linton, and Denise Van Acker. Moreover, I must consider myself fortunate to have been associated with many capable and knowledgeable persons at the Semicondutor Industry Association ( SIA) and other business organizations. They have been the source of my motivation to write this book, and their words of encouragement often provided the necessary incentive.

Finally, Dorothy, my patient and understanding wife, made all the family inconveniences that come along when writing a book seem easy to overcome. I could not have finished this endeavor otherwise.

Additionally, to all those who helped but were (inadvertently) not mentioned, I offer my sincere thanks.
