Subject: Newsletter: Book Cover Decided
Happy Hello Dear Readers!
Ah yes! This Newsletter is indeed a Happy Hello for I have completed a draft index for my next book, _Women Political Leaders in Africa_. Now when the page proofs come, I’m ready! All that has to be done to the index at that point is put the page numbers to the index.
If you would like to see the striking cover for _Women Political Leaders in Africa_, you may do so on McFarland’s web site located at http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-3299-8. The woman pictured on the cover is Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Finance Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nigeria. Here is an advance excerpt about this competent woman. I hope that it wets your appetite to purchase the book:
“In 2006, Okonjo-Iweala's rank of 62 on Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women credits her for ‘prudent debt management and calls for fiscal discipline.’ Okonjo-Iweala led the negotiations that resulted in cancellation of nearly two-thirds, $18 billion, of Nigeria's $30 billion Paris Club debt. This debt cancellation was the second largest in the Paris Club of international creditor's 30-year history and Africa's biggest debt write-off.”
McFarland Publishers has advertised _Female Suicide Bombers_ in _Minerva Journal of Women and War_ (ISSN 0736-718X), a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed scholarly journal that examines the roles of women in war and the ways that armed conflict affects women's lives.
