More Appreciations

Besides the help of my husband, to whom I dedicated the book, I want to thank my daughter, Lyla El-Safy, for her constant encouragement over the years, and her thoughtful suggestions about the research, the book, and ideas for videos. My grandaughter, Yasmine El-Safy, provided the voice for the Youtube video, and also took the photograph of me on the back jacket of the book.

I am grateful to the following people who read my rough draft in 1997 and gave valuable comments:

Snjezana Akpinar
Ibrahim Muhawi
Ahlam Nabulsi-Scaun
Eleanor Nicholson
Margot Blum Schevill
