Jim Grant was a visionary leader on a global scale. As Executive Director of UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, from 1980 to 1995, he launched a worldwide child survival and development revolution. The practical result was that by 1995, 25 million children were alive who would otherwise have died. Millions more were living with better health and nutrition. The eight pieces in this volume, all by Jim Grant’s close colleagues, celebrate this achievement. But much more, they draw out the lessons of Grant’s vision and leadership – lessons relevant in many other contexts.
