Hendrik Spruyt

 I am grateful for comments on an earlier draft by Erin Graham, Alex Thomp-son, Alex Wendt, Sara Brooks, Jennifer Mitzen and Randy Schweller. I would particularly like to thank the organizers of the conference at METU for their comments and invitation to come to Ankara, specifically: Dean Eyüp Özve-ren, Chair Meliha Altunisik and Professor Faruk Yalvaç. I am also grateful to Daniele Archibugi, Nils Gleditsch, Mahmood Monshipouri, Julian Saurin and other participants who offered critique and advice.
