Acknowledgments

We have received generous assistance and support from many individuals and institutions in completing this data book. A small army of current and former students have worked long and cheerfully on data entry and in the preparation of the tables and figures that are contained in the volume. In particular, we wish to thank Amy Barton, Anthony Carmona, KaLyn Davis, Merrill Davis, Heather Fenstermaker, Ellen Forman, Sharon Koch, and Edward Stewart. Special gratitude is owed to LaVonna Blair and Valerie Heitshusen, the graduate assistants that were responsible for managing many of the day-to-day activities of the project. Ross Goldberg deserves recognition and thanks for his skill and hard work in the final preparation of the volume for publication.

We owe many debts of gratitude to our colleagues at Rice University and elsewhere for their encouragement and advice on this project. John Alford and Ric Stoll have been especially helpful in suggesting solutions to the complications that arose in managing the dozens of data tapes land millions of observations that had to be processed in the course of compiling the information reported in the volume. For their helpful advice and encouragement on the project, we would like to thank Ted Anagnoson, Thomas Anton, David Brady, Joseph Cooper, Keith Hamm, Kenneth Meier, Peter Miezkowski, Mike Rich, Barry Rundquist, and John Witte.

We are also grateful to a number of institutions that have been instrumental in supporting our research. In the early stages of the project, Rice University provided Kenneth Bickers with a Faculty Research Grant to undertake the preliminary stages of the data collection effort. The Rice University Center for the Study of Institutions and Values provided additional funding to the authors to purchase government data tapes. The National Science Foundation(grant number SES-8921109) provided major funding for the project. The Rice University Computer Center, and especially Priscilla Huston, Andrea Martin, David Boyes, and Richard Schafer, provided invaluable technical support and assistance on the project. We would like to thank Robert Brown, Staff Director for the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, and David Kellerman, Director of the Government Division of the U.S. Census Bureau, for their suggestions and assistance in the use of federal data on programmatic expenditures. Finally, we would like to thank Michael Weber of M.E. Sharpe for his support and advice in the preparation of this volume.
