I am writing to request your participation in what I believe will be a significant publication for those of us interested in the history of the peace movement. I recently agreed to edit Opposition to War: An Encyclopedia of United States Peace and Antiwar Movements for ABC-CLIO. The best way to ensure the highest quality publication is through enlisting expert scholars as contributors. This work will include substantial entries ranging from 300-4,000 words, an introductory essay, chronology, general bibliography, cross-referenced entries, and photographs.
I would greatly appreciate your participation in this project to whatever degree you are able. Information regarding this publication (such as available entries, essay length, guidelines, and compensation) is available on the website http://www.uspeaceencyclopedia.com. For anyone interested in writing, please submit a brief CV highlighting your scholarly activity, and a list of the available entries you would like to contribute. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have either through email at email@example.com or by phone at (989-774-3374). Please respond at your earliest convenience.
