We would like to thank the Policy Advisory Board of the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics as well as the Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley, which provided support for preparing this book. We would like to acknowledge comments and suggestions from Pranab Bardhan, Claire Brown, Farok Contractor, Samir Dutt, Robert Edelstein, Michael Reich, AnnaLee Saxenian, Tim Sturgeon, Branko Urosevic, Pravin Varaiya, and Richard Walker. Tyler Fach, student assistant at the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics collected background material and acted as chief herder—ensuring that authors received and returned materials in a timely manner. The Industry Studies Association list serve was a useful forum in the early stages of the book as we shaped our topic and identified authors. We would also like to thank the Oxford University Press, especially Catherine Rae, Terry Vaughn, and Cathryn Vaulman, as well as their production team at Newgen Knowledge Works in India headed by Sreejith Viswanathan. Given the subject matter of the book, we were interested to participate in a fully global process of production. Of course this volume would not have been possible without the participation of the numerous contributing authors whose work appears on the following pages.
