I am deeply indebted to a large number of individuals who commented on this
paper, unfortunately that number is far greater than this small space will accommodate.
However, I am particularly thankful for the advice and comments that I received from
the faculty and students of the Political Science Department at the University of North

Kimi King, Ko Maeda, Dave Mason, Liz Oldmixon and Steve Poe. Special thanks also
goes to my mentors Jim Meernik and Steve Poe for helping to convince me that
graduate work in political science was a good idea in the first place and for supporting
me throughout the process. I would also like to acknowledge the financial support that
I received from the University of North Texas in the form of the Craig B. Raupe
Scholarship and from the International Studies Quarterly in the form of a travel grant,
which helped fund the presentation of an earlier version of this research paper titled
"Breadbasket or Basket Case? Determinants of US Foreign Food Aid 1977-2000" at the
annual meeting of the International Studies Association in snowy Chicago, IL on Friday

and Peggy, to my brother Ryan, to my fiance Yumi Ogawa, and to my comrades-in-
arms, Kinzie Craig, Susi Michalik and the dancing monkey for the unwavering support
that each of these individuals have shown me. This thesis also benefited greatly from
the steadfast companionship of my dog Professor, whom stayed by my side during
