Working for Change: Making a Career in International Public Service

By Derick W. Brinkerhoff; Jennifer M. Brinkerhoff | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book is a labor of love. To a large extent it represents fulfillment of our own service vision, to facilitate others in exploring career options in international public service, and in becoming as true to themselves and to their service as they can be. Our frameworks and the structure for the book are the product of our years of practice, teaching, advising, and research. But the book would not be complete without the voices and input of so many who have chosen service careers and lifestyles. We thank our support networks of family and friends, and those who mentored us on our career paths in international public service.

More specifically we thank our profiled practitioners, Jef Buehler, Jennifer Butz, Sarah Newhall, Najma Siddiqi, Aaron Williams, and David Yang, for sharing not only their career paths, but also their life stories and insightful advice, which we pass on to you.

The Section on International and Comparative Administration (SICA) of the American Society for Public Administration has had a long and fruitful relationship with Kumarian Press. We acknowledge support from SICA for the publication of this book.

We benefited from several opportunities to test and refine our frameworks and to collect additional input for the book. Among these was a roundtable at the 2003 American Society for Public Administration Conference. We thank Tara Hill, Susan Holcombe, Marcus Ingle, and Phil Morgan for their prepared remarks and input, as well as others who participated in the discussion. The frameworks were further tested in Jennifer's Fall 2003 Development Management Processes and Tools class at George Washington University. We took inspiration from these discussions and shared experiences. The class agreed to allow us to share some of their thoughts and struggles with you. Since to a large extent they represent our primary audience for this book, we thank them for helping us to understand our readers better and for permitting this book to be a vehicle through which they could “talk” to you.
