Call for Authors: Anger in Geo-Political and Historical Context

Dear Colleagues:

I am under contract to prepare the first of two volumes on how “Anger”  has played out over time in a geo-political and historical context. Currently I am  looking for more contributors on a wide range of topics from how popular anger is impacting the territorial tensions in the East & South China Seas to the use of “Anger” as a tool in am radio broadcasts and other complementary topics. Please look over the more formal announcement below and contact me directly if you like to see the list of articles still available.
