Subject: Newsletter: Manuscript accepted
Happy Hello Readers!
The _happiest_ hellos accompany this Newsletter. It is always a wonderful moment when I receive the Publisher’s initial letter of acceptance of a manuscript. The approval of my recent manuscript on _Female Genital Mutilation_ is no exception. The production stage has officially begun. This stage takes from 9 to 15 months. The last two books were published under a year, so that may be the case once again. Much work is to be done between now and then. I must compile an index, read page proofs and attend to any necessary questions and/or suggestions along the way.
Other books continue on their journeys. Read about one way to follow their journeys.
JOURNEYS OF BOOKS: _WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN UNDER THE TALIBAN_, _PATERNITY AND AMERICAN LAW_ AND WRITINGS OF YESTERYEAR
One way to follow the journeys of my books is to examine where they might be cited. In total, my books, particularly, _Power and Gender_ have been cited in law journals. _The last time I checked Lexis Nexis, I found four new citations that I have listed below. Numbers 15 and 16 cite _The Women of Afghanistan Under the Taliban_. Number 16 cites it in reference to women and the “War on Terror.” Number 17 cites an article that I coauthored in the 1980s; and Number 18 cites _Paternity and American Law_.

DÉJÀ VU UPDATE
The appearance of a book chapter, “Properly Trained Servicewomen Can Overcome Physical Shortcomings,” in _Women in the Military_, James Haley, ed., San Diego: Greenhaven Press, 2004, is as I thought. McFarland deals with all permissions to use my work and approved this use. For those of you who might have my book, _Women at War: Americans in Combat_, the reprint will be pages 173-177, 183-186.
If you should read Haley’s book, I recommend special focus on retired Army Major Lillian A. Pfluke’s chapter, “The Best Soldier for the Job: A Personal Perspective.”
