The New Hampshire Primary and the American Electoral Process

By Niall A. Palmer | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In the arduous process of converting my doctoral thesis into book form I have had much valuable assistance and would like to take the opportunity to thank those people who have given me so much advice and help. Mrs. Anne Merriman put in much painstaking work transferring the original text to disk. How she managed to negotiate a way through my scribbled notes I shall never know, but her determination and interest were an inspiration. Professor Richard Hodder-Williams, of the University of Bristol, supervised my original doctoral thesis, and I am happy for the chance to thank him for his support and advice. Likewise, I benefited greatly from the advice of Professor Emmett H. Buell, Jr., of Denison University, Ohio, another political scientist fascinated by the New Hampshire primary. Closer to home, I would like to express my appreciation to Dr. S. J. Kleinberg and Brunel University College for its support in the completion of this work and to the Nuffield Foundation and the U.S. Embassy and British Academy for their generosity in financial assistance for the project.

My frequent visits to New Hampshire have enabled me to make many contacts and many new friends. Notable amongst the latter are Representative Natalie Flanagan, Representative Susan McLane, former Representative Larry Elliott, Mrs. Aileen Katz, Skip and Gloria Calley, John Duval and freelance writer Charles Brereton. To each I wish to extend my thanks and appreciation and the hope that they will find this book of some interest. The campaigns I have witnessed have now receded into history, but I retain fond memories of the energetic "Gephardt For President" crowd, particularly Mark Fusaris and Mark Longabaugh, and of Bush coordinator Will Abbott and Kerrey strategist Al Rose. I hope they will come across this book at some point in the future. Thanks also to Lee Ann Steiner, Paul Young and Joe Grandmaison for their valuable insights into New Hampshire politics and to Professor Charles Cutter at San Diego State for some memorable cultural experiences!
