Dear Professors,I am contacting you about perhaps contributing to the encyclopedia currently being published by Blackwell. The encyclopedia entitled, the International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest: 1500 to Present, is expected to be out by fall 2008 as an eight -volume, 5000-page work. It covers the protests and revolutions in countries throughout the world. That said, as the Associate Editor for the Women and Gender Section. I was wondering if you would like to contribute to this work and perhaps suggest some of the entries. We are seeking entries on the actual protests, movements, as well as biographies of protest leaders and organizational profiles. If you are interested please respond back to me at your soonest convenience. In addition, perhaps you could provide us with names and contact information for writers that may be interested in writing on the topic for any geographical region.We expect that the encyclopedia will be the first of its kind writtenby scholars and writers from the world over. The editorial advisoryboard views protest and revolution as a means to human freedom and are sympathetic to movements of all kinds to better humankind. This encyclopedia endeavors to cover revolutions from the 16th Century to the present. As noted, Blackwell Publishing is asking us to submit articles on important protests, revolutions, uprisings, and insurrections, biographies of important historical figures, and organizational profiles. As a leading expert, I am reaching out to you. At the same time, the essays (which are peer-review and
refereed) should not be a great burden and do not involve much time in completing.
If you agree, are you able to complete the essay in the coming months?
I am attaching the Blackwell Publishing style guide for the project.
Let me know if you have any questions. Since time is of essence, I look forward to hearing from you in the coming day or two. I am attaching the Blackwell Styleguide for this Project.
