A number of other friends and colleagues have contributed valuable suggestions and criticism, in particular Paul Abramson, Gabriel Almond, Frank Andrews, David Appel, Philip Converse, Karl Deutsch, Richard Hofferbert, Leon Lindberg, Seymour Martin Lipset, A.F.K. Organski, Robert Putnam, Helene Riflault, David Segal, Donald Stokes, Burkhard Strumpel, and Steven Withey. The University of Michigan provided a grant from the Horace H.
