For Tito and Jenny who got me started, Cathy who kept me going, and Calum and Finlay, who can take over from here.
Once again, I am indebted to the editorial dream team of Mark Fried and Anna Coryndon. Mark’s unique combination of editorial skill, deep knowledge of development and phenomenal patience helped steer this book from a messy first draft to (hopefully) something rather better. Anna managed the project throughout with her customary grace and attention to detail.
I would like to thank Oxfam for giving me the time and encouragement to write this book, but while I thank Oxfam for its support, I want to make it clear that How Change Happens does not necessarily reflect Oxfam policy positions – the views expressed are those of the author.
A huge number of Oxfam friends and colleagues contributed to various drafts and discussions, including Laurie Adams, Emily Brown, Celine Charveriat, Binay Dhital, Thomas Dunmore-Rodriguez, Lisa Marie Faye, Penny Fowler, Uwe Gneiting, Sally Golding, Mark Goldring, Tim Gore, Irene Guijt, Thomas Heath, Mohga Kamal-Yanni, Eluka Kibona, Gawain Kripke, Max Lawson, Paul O’Brien, Jo Rowlands, Erinch Sahan, Joss Saunders, Kashif Shabir, Barry Shelley, Kaori Shigiya, Mary Sue Smiarowski, Caroline Sweetman and Andrew Wells-Dang.
The book has been greatly helped by the financial and intellectual support of Australia’s Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade, including Kirsten Bishop, Helen Corrigan, Steve Hogg, Sally Moyle and Sandra Kraushaar.
Colleagues at the Developmental Leadership Program have provided invaluable advice, notably Niheer Dasandi, David Hudson, Linda Kelly, Heather Lyne de Ver, Heather Marquette, Alina Rocha Menocal and Chris Roche.
Thanks to my long-suffering students at the London School of Economics for allowing me to test various iterations of the arguments in the book on them.
More generally, I am deeply indebted to a wide and supportive network of ‘development wonks’ scattered across academia, civil society, business and government, including Jean Boulton, Francesco Caberlin, Nathaniel Calhoun, Robert Chambers, Paul Clough, Steve Commins, Stefanie Conrad, Paddy Coulter, Aidan Craney, James Deane, Alice Evans, Jaime Faustino, Robin Ford, Alan Fowler, Greta Galeazzi, John Gaventa, Calum Green, Finlay Green, Tom Harrison, Maximilian Heywood, David Hillman, Robert Jordan, Nanci Lee, Jeremy Lim, Matthew Lockwood, Siobhan Mcdonnell, Catherine Masterman, Masood UL Mulk, Arnaldo Pellini, Vicky Randall, Raul Sanchez-Urribarri, Ryan Stoa, Heidi Tydemers, Craig Valters, Jorge Velasquez, Steve Waygood, Frauke de Weijer, Leni Wild.
The OUP team of Kim Behrens, Kate Farquhar-Thomson, Phil Henderson, Adam Swallow and Aimee Wright have been a delight to work with throughout.
I would also like to thank the many, many people around the world who gave up precious time to answer the questions of a nosy visitor. Many are named in the text, unless they wished to remain anonymous.
And finally, if you helped with the book, have scoured this page, and not found your name, all I can offer is my groveling apology and a heartfelt thankyou.
As ever, any errors in the text are mine alone and certainly not the responsibility of the many people who have helped me along the way.
