In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

FrnsT and foremost, we wish to give full recognition to the contribution of Ronald P. Archer and James W. McGuire. Their work on this project, which began with their role as research assistants, expanded to a form of collabora­ tion that makes them coauthors of portions of the book. Specifically, Archer is coauthor of the analysis of Colombia and Uruguay in Chapters 5, 6, and 7, as well as portions of the analysis of Venezuela in Chapter 6. McGuire is coauthor of the analysis of Argentina in Chapters 5, 6, and 7. McGuire also provided invaluable assistance in the analysis of Uruguay. We deeply appre­ ciate their analytic skill and hard work, and we greatly enjoyed collaborating with both of them. A number of other Berkeley students worked as skilled research assistants or provided extensive comments on earlier drafts: Judith Biewener, Maxwell A. Cameron, Maria Lorena Cook, Peter Houtzager, Wendy Hunter, Ollie Johnson, Peter Kingstone, James Mahon, Carol Ann Medlin, Peter Molloy, Deborah L. Norden, Tony Pickering, Timothy R. Scully, Jeffrey Sluyter, Deb­ orah J. Yashar, and Florence Zolin. Our Peruvian colleague Francisco Durand and also Cynthia Sanborn provided exceptionally skilled assistance. This project was initiated under a grant from the National Science Foun­ dation (SES-801 7728), and the publication of the book has been supported by a grant to Princeton University Press from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Generous support for research assistance and other project ex­ penses was provided by the Institute of Industrial Relations, the Institute of International Studies, the Department of Political Science, and the Center for Latin American Studies at Berkeley. Ruth Collier received support from a fellowship awarded by the Joint Committee on Latin American Studies of SSRC/ACLS, from the Berkeley Department of Political Science, and from the Berkeley Program in Mexican Studies. David Collier was supported by an award from the Latin American Committee of SSRC/ACLS, the Institute for the Study of World Politics, the National Fellows Program of the Hoover In­ stitution, and the Faculty Fellows Program of the Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame. We acknowledge publishers' permission to draw material from the follow­ ing two articles: Ruth Berins Collier and David Collier, "Inducements versus Constraints: Disaggregating 'Corporatism,' " The American Political Science Review 73, no. 4 (December 1979), pp. 967-86; and Ruth Berins Collier, "Popular Sector Incorporation and Political Supremacy: Regime Evolution in Brazil and Mexico," in Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Richard S. Weinert, eds., Bra­ zil and Mexico: Patterns in Late Development (Philadelphia: Institute for the Study of Human Issues, 1 982). As we complete a project of this scope, we recognize with gratitude the role played by colleagues who provide that special combination of astute critAcknowledgments xx S H A P IN G T H E P O L I T I C A L A R E N A icism, intellectual support, and sustained friendship. We especially single out John Coatsworth, Robert R. Kaufman, Guillermo O'Donnell, and John Wirth, who gave detailed and helpful comments on the manuscript. We also want to make special mention of Louis W. Goodman, Terry Karl, Philippe C. Schmitter, and Alfred Stepan. Alex M. Saragoza, in his role as Mexicanist, as chair of the Berkeley Center for Latin American Studies, and as friend, of­ fered invaluable insight and encouragement. Margaret Case, Sanford Thatcher, David Nelson Blair, and other colleagues associated with Princeton University Press provided outstanding assistance with the preparation of the manuscript. Greer and Sue Allen gave timely ad­ vice on such esoterica as ascenders and x-heights. Institutional assistance, as well, occasionally goes far beyond the ordinary. Ruth Collier greatly appreciates the ongoing support of the Berkeley Institute of International Studies and of its staff, which provided an eminently hospi­ table setting for her work. She wishes especially to acknowledge the profes­ sional and personal generosity of the Institute's recent director, Carl G. Ros­ berg. David Collier's work was greatly aided by his opportunity to spend time in the remarkable environment for research and scholarly debate provided by the Helen Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of No­ tre Dame. The Institute's founding directors, Guillermo O'Donnell and Er­ nest Bartell deserve abundant credit for creating this outstanding research center. Over a number of years, in response both to seminar presentations and written drafts, many other colleagues provided helpful suggestions that aided us in revising the book, and we can acknowledge only some of them here: Robert Alexander...
