ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

My mother taught me that it is polite to send thank you notes for gifts. In this case, it is a pleasure rather than an obligation to express my gratitude to the many individuals who have given their time, resources, and support to bring this project to completion. The book has benefited from the thoughtful critiques of several scholars. I am particularly grateful for the detailed reading and comments provided by Charles McCurdy which helped me to reshape the manuscript in fundamental ways. Tom Green, the editor of the legal history series, willingly read multiple drafts and gently pushed me to tighten and refine the argument. Sucheng Chan and Dirk Hartog have read and commented on portions of the manuscript. Marianne Constable and Susan Sterett have not only been my closest friends but have read the entire manuscript several times, until they know it as well as I do. I am deeply grateful for their critical insights as well as their emotional support.

I have been very fortunate in my colleagues at the University of New Hampshire. My entire department has been extraordinarily supportive of the project. In particular, I thank Al Linden for his help with Chineselanguage materials, Janet Polasky and Laurel Ulrich for their comments on grant proposals and chapters, and the chairs of the History Department, John Voll and Jeffry Diefenrf, for ushering me through administrative channels for research support. Beyond my department, I thank Mil Duncan and Lisa MacFarlane for their friendship and interest in the project, Deanna Wood for her help in locating legal sources, and the staff at the Faculty Resource Center for computer assistance.

Research can be relatively painless and even enjoyable when one has the help of knowledgeable experts. I wish to thank Waverly Lowell, archivist at the San Bruno branch of the National Archives, and her staff for their help in locating and using material, as well as Cynthia Fox of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Michael Griffith, historian for the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, and Lynn Lundstrom, librarian for the court, have become good friends in part because of the amount of time we spent together as they aided me in my research. Rachel Bowman and Christine Fowler also provided valuable research assistance, and Elisabeth Nichols helped with the tedious task of proofreading. Thanks, too, to the editorial staff at the University of North Carolina Press for helping to bring the project to fruition.

Funding from a variety of sources allowed me the time and resources to
