It has been a pleasure to collaborate with Ron on another book and a particular delight to work with Stacy and Lynda, two of my new colleagues at Simmons. Many thanks to all of our contributors across the globe, from the big names in the field to the newly invited doctoral graduates. Between them they have generously shared their latest, cutting edge research studies with us and, in so doing, advanced the field. This book would not have been possible without the support of Alison Southgate, who has been the nerve centre, managing all the communications between the editorial team, the contributors and the publishers. Huge thanks to her and Jean Hutton, who assisted her at Cranfield. As ever, thanks goes to my husband John who is my greatest supporter and to my children Rebecca, Jade, Bruno, Alex and Daniel who I hope will understand the nature of women’s careers far better than I did at their ages!
