Dear PCVs and RPCVs,

I am a Western Samoan RPCV (1983 to 1985) who has worked in Jordan several times over the years.

I just published a book on "honor" killings in Jordan, and it's available for sale now. The book is entitled "Reclaiming Honor in Jordan," it is 133 pages long, it is written in English, and it is about a nationwide attitude and opinion survey on "honor" killings I conducted in Jordan, the findings of which surprised even me. It costs US$19.99 per copy plus postage and handling costs of approximately US$5.00 per copy (exact amount can be determined when I know how and where the purchaser wants it sent).

If anyone would like a copy or copies, please e-mail me at with the following information:

1. your name;
2. your snail mail address;
3. your e-mail address;
4. the number of copies you'd like; and
5. any other details you think I should know.

With that information, I will invoice you electronically, then, when payment is received, I'll drop the book(s) in the mail. Delivery from Jordan typically takes about two weeks, but it can take as long as four or more. So if the buyer(s) could e-mail me confirming eventual receipt, it'd be appreciated.

Thank you for your support and interest.
