After leading a needs assessment with Hesperian partners in 1996-97, Todd Jailer developed the original vision and outline for this project, and shepherded it through early stages of development. From 2000, Jeff Conant’s commitment to environmental and social justice and full-time writing propelled the project forward. Upon joining in 2004, Pam Fadem’s energy, engagement, and organizational skill pulled the project into book form. Todd Jailer stepped in again to help finish the book in 2007-08. The organized review input of Hesperian’s talented staff (book packers, designers, promotional and editorial workers, fundraisers and administrators) also shaped the book at every step.
