Subject: Newsletter: _Female Suicide Bombers_ submitted

Happy Hello Dear Readers!

I am delighted to announce that my _Female Suicide Bomber_ manuscript is submitted to McFarland. They are very excited about this book and are advertising it in their Spring 2006 catalogue. This means a quick turn around for publishing. So, my immediate task is to prepare a draft index, so that when the proof pages arrive, I can do my part in assuring that quick publication date.

I was pleased to receive an email from Fran Hosken who is one of pioneers in the research of FGM. A couple of sentences from her email read:

“It is the most thorough documentation of FGM I have seen-Congratulations! ... I admire the enormous amount of research you gathered and presented.”

Other than doing my draft index of my _Female Suicide Bomber_ book, I will be doing some promotional work for _Female Genital Mutilation_. You can help by suggesting to your nearby library that they purchase the book for their shelves. Complete information can be found on McFarland’s web site located at: http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/book-2.php?isbn=0-7864-2167-3. The advantage of printing it from the web is that you have a picture to show the librarian along with the pertinent information.

Or you can print this Newsletter and take it to your local library. The information is:

Female Genital Mutilation: Legal, Cultural and Medical Issues

Description
Female genital mutilation (FGM) occurs in many parts of the world, especially in Africa. It is a cultural practice thought to have been established centuries ago, though its origins appear to have been lost in the past. International efforts to eliminate it also have a long history. As early as the 17th century, Christian missionaries and colonial administrations in Africa attempted to prevent the practice. Today, efforts to eradicate FGM are under way within and outside of practicing cultures. This book discusses the definition and types of FGM and explores the common justifications for the practice, along with the incidence in Africa and other continents, global laws, legal issues, rights and religion. Ethical considerations are examined, as are progress and the role of culture. Personal interviews help to expand and enrich the discussion. The book concludes with thoughts on the movement from tradition to cultural evolution.
