The co-incidence led me to reflect on the vast changes, in all areas of life, that occurred during my century and to wonder what the new century might hold for my grandchildren.Born in the 1930s and having lived through most of the twentieth century, it occurred to me that in the normal course of events, my grandchildren will see most of the twenty-first century.

While we cannot know what the new century will hold for them, the future in general flows from the past through the present and this thought prompted me to set down for my grandchildren, the story of my century.The problem of course was how to do it. Eventually I decided to write this journal, not of my life as such but of one single thread which flowed through the century- my work throughout the Developing World.The intention is to weave my way from country to country so that each chapter should become like a separate and distinct new canvas of that particular time.

The descriptive images in the final product are intended to present my experiences like a collage of the twentieth century - it is a human story.The historic background is given for each country together with its economic and social circumstances in order to illustrate where they were at that time and to this mix I have added some of my own personal experiences.ContentsAcknowledgementsAuthor’s NoteIntroductionNigeriaSouth-East AsiaPhilippines, Vietnam, CambodiaChinaBangladesh, Sri Lanka, PakistanSaudi ArabiaMalawi, MozambiqueCote d’IvoireKenya, Uganda CongoLesothoMauritius, Papua New GuineaKyrgyzstan, TajikistanInternational AidConclusionBibliographyCyril Bowman, Galway.
