Although one has always been in the periphery of the editorship of the Journal of Public Administration, or what Roslyn Petelin describes as "editing from the edge" (2005: 458), being thrust to the centre as the Chief Editor came as a daunting challenge. For, taking over a responsibility that has always been superbly executed by those who came before me is naturally associated with the question: would I fit in their large shoes?
