The original idea for this Handbook came from David Musson at Oxford University Press. David and his colleague Matthew Derbyshire have, as usual, been patient and supportive editors. Early versions of some of the chapters were presented at the Annual Conference of the Society for the Advancement of Socio‐Economics (SASE) in June 2007 held at Copenhagen Business School. We want to thank participants in those sessions and in other arenas for their comments when earlier versions of the chapters have been presented.
Warwick Business School (WBS), Copenhagen Business School (CBS), and especially the International Centre for Business and Politics (CBP) have all played important roles in supporting the Handbook. Glenn Morgan would like to thank WBS and the University of Warwick for providing study leave in 2008–9, which enabled him to oversee the completion of the project. Part of that time was spent at CBP and this supportive environment greatly facilitated the completion of the project. The fact that John Campbell and Ove Kaj Pedersen were at CBP at the same time was also very helpful in coordinating the final version. Ove Kaj secured funding from CBP to employ student assistance in producing final publisher‐ready versions of the chapters—thanks to CBP and Jurate Beniulyte for this work. The final manuscript was produced in WBS with the able assistance of Katy Carpenter and Jo Sheehan.
Finally thanks go to all the contributors for their patience and cooperation in the production of the Handbook.
