Preface and Acknowledgments

This work is part of a series of edited books, Transformational Trends in Governance and Democracy, that capture the latest thinking in public management. The books represent what we believe are fundamental, transformational trends emerging in governance and democracy. Each book asks: How is governance or democracy being transformed? What impact will transformations have? Will forces arise to counter transformations? Where will transformations take governance and democracy in the future? The Academy sponsors the series in partnership with M.E. Sharpe, Inc. Many of the chapters in the series have been contributed by Academy Fellows and professional staff. We have also drawn on leaders in public management representing different ways of thinking about the issues. I am editing the series overall, with well-known experts editing individual volumes.

This edited book arises out of discussions Donna Fabiani, now with the Opportunity Finance Network, but late of the Community Development Finance Institutions Fund, and I had about changes in community development financing generally, and community development program performance management and accountability, and their implications for the field. We concluded that it would be a good time to marshal the opinions of practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and advocates to learn their views on trends in community development.

Acknowledgments

We would like to thank Jenna Dom, President of the Academy, for her support and for marshalling Academy resources in developing and executing this project. We would also like to thank M.E. Sharpe, Inc., especially Harry Briggs, Elizabeth Granda, and Stacey Victor for their assistance and encouragement.
