Over 23 Volumes and 25 years, the series has offered publication outlets for papers addressing a wide array of topics related to organization development interventions and research. Theory, research, methodology and practice have been described within the pages of the Series. Groundbreaking pieces such as the first article on Appreciative Inquiry and others that challenge the values by which we practice have made the Series exciting and relevant. In many years, conversations about the papers in the volume have been the subject of Academy of Management symposia, in which leading scholars debate ideas and compare research findings. The series has created a community of practice in the profession among both scholars and practitioners who share a passion to understand the mysteries of organizational change.
"Tired of reading more of the “been there, done that” approach to OD and HRD? The Pasmore, Woodman and Shani series Research in Organizational Change and Development has, for the last 20 years, been a beacon, shining a light on the most courageous innovations, ideas, and studies in change.

In this paper we evaluate the impact of colonialism on development in Sub-Saharan Africa. In the world context, colonialism had very heterogeneous effects, operating through many mechanisms, sometimes encouraging development sometimes retarding it. In the African case, however, this heterogeneity is muted, making an assessment of the average effect more interesting. We emphasize that to draw conclusions it is necessary not just to know what actually happened to development during the colonial period, but also to take a view on what might have happened without colonialism and also to take into account the legacy of colonialism. We argue that in the light of plausible counter-factuals, colonialism probably had a uniformly negative effect on development in Africa. To develop this claim we distinguish between three sorts of colonies: (1) those which coincided with a pre-colonial centralized state, (2) those of white settlement, (3) the rest. Each have distinct performance within the colonial period, different counter-factuals and varied legacies.
