Happy Hello Dear Readers!
The brisk air of Fall is indeed invigorating on my morning walks. The energizing and zippy tonic signals the merry, but cold season yet to come. Sheltered in my Castle, my writing carries on. I am deeply into my book chapter for Sage Publishing on women’s leadership in Africa. This work is not due until January 30, 2009, but my goal is to have it done sometime in December 2008.
Meanwhile, Feminist Collections has reviewed my book, Women Political Leaders in Africa with McFarland. Since the review is copyrighted, here is a highlight from their review:
"Rosemarie Skaine's Women Political Leaders in Africa addresses this gap in public awareness. ... Although other sources of similar information exist, no single work is as comprehensive. ... Therefore, I highly recommend this work for all academic reference collections."
--Nancy M. Lewis, "Rosemarie Skaine, Women Political Leaders in Africa," Feminist Collections (v.29, no. 2, Spring 2008).
As yet, Lewis’ review is not published online, but maybe at some point. Feminist Collections’ website is located at http://womenst.library.wisc.edu/publications/feminist-periodicals.html.
