8 Acknowledgements This book owes its existence to a great many people. I am particularly grateful to the people of Sanxia, whose hospitality and generosity made my research possible. It is impossible to mention everyone who helped by name, but I want to thank especially Zheng Youcai, Huang Yuanlong and Wang Hongzhi, who opened many doors for me; Liu Bingzhen and his entire family, who looked after me; and the staffs of the Changfu Yan and Cede Si, who always helped me with patience and care. Guo Shuhua served as my assistant, and her help made the scope of the research possible. The Institute of Ethnology at the Academia Sinica provided me with an institutional home, and its faculty was an important source of intellectual stimulation. Emily Martin advised the dissertation research on which much of the book is based. She, Stevan Harrell and Alice Ingerson generously read and commented on the entire manuscript. I am very grateful for their time and effort. I also want to thank Virginia Dominguez, Scott Guggenheim, Susan Naquin, Kathleen Ryan, Brackette Williams, and the members of the faculty seminar on Marxism and Society at Duke University for their comments on parts of the manuscript. My general intellectual debt to Maurice Freedman, Arthur Wolf, and C. K. Yang should be clear from the pages that follow. The research for this book took place in Sanxia over twenty months between 1976 and 1979, funded by a Wenner-Gren Foundation Grant-in-Aid, a Social Science Research Council International Doctoral Fellowship, and National Science Foundation Grant for Improvement of Doctoral Dissertation Research No. BNS The conclusions and other findings of this book, of course, are my own, and not necessarily those of the funding agencies.
