Editing this book has been a wonderful journey and many people have helped us along the way. We’d like to thank Fred Walumba for conceiving the notion of a book on this topic, and for inviting us to take it on. We especially appreciate the luxury of the time he gave us to complete it. (We, in turn gave our authors a little over a year to write the first draft of their chapters and we think the depth of thinking and reflection that can come in that amount of time is evident in the writing.) We’d also like to thank the staff at Emerald who have been very supportive of our ‘not so typical’ approach to academic writing. Many thanks go to Alison Cain for her dedicated copy-editing skills, especially given the tight deadlines she somehow found time to meet! Finally and most importantly, none of this could happen without the support and love of our spouses, Robin and Rosemary. To them we offer our heartfelt gratitude.
