First and foremost I want to thank the United Nations University—World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) Director, Finn Tarp for unwavering professional, moral, and financial support from the initial project idea to the completion of this book. I am very grateful to Danielle Resnick for her constructive and timely intellectual (political science in a network of economists) and logistic contributions to all aspects of the project; to Henrik Hansen for his intellectual insights and contributions to the preparation of the analytical framework; to Derrill Watson for his intellectual contributions to the development of the framework for the political economy analyses and the outstanding synthesis; to the three project advisors—Philip Abbott, William Lyakurwa, and Robert Paarlberg—for their intellectual leadership; to Suresh Babu, Kenneth Baltzer, and Shane Bryan for outstanding syntheses; to Lisa Winkler for her editorial and administrative support; to Mary-Catherine French for administrative and secretarial support; to Lorraine Telfer-Taivainen for her advice and support of the preparation of the book and for facilitating collaboration with Oxford University Press; to Adam Swallow for guidance in the preparation of the book manuscript; and to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the UNU-WIDER, and Cornell University for financial support of the project that led to this book. My colleagues at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Prabhu Pingali, Ellen McCullough, and Tuu-Van Nguyen, provided valuable intellectual input to the project. Last, but by no means least, I want to thank all the network members for a most stimulating interaction and collaboration, and for enhancing my conceptual and empirical understanding of the political economy of food policy.
