Uganda: Acknowledgements
Country Study > Acknowledgements


The authors are grateful to numerous individuals in various government agencies and private institutions who generously shared their time, expertise, and knowledge about Uganda. These people include Ralph K. Benesch, who oversees the Country Studies-Area Handbook program for the Department of the Army. None of these individuals is in any way responsible for the work of the authors, however.

The authors also wish to thank those who contributed directly to the preparation of the manuscript. These include Sandra W. Meditz, who reviewed all textual and graphic materials and served as liaison with the sponsoring agency; Richard F. Nyrop, who reviewed several of the chapters; Marilyn Majeska, who managed editing and production; Reed Isbel, who edited the chapters; Laverle Berry, who updated chapters and helped prepare the manuscript for prepublication review; Tim Merrill, who helped select illustrations and draft maps; and Barbara Edgerton, Janie L. Gilchrist, and Izella Watson, who did the word processing. Beverly Wolpert performed the final prepublication editorial review, and Joan C. Cook compiled the index. Linda Peterson and Malinda B. Neale of the Library of Congress Printing and Processing Section performed phototypesetting, under the supervision of Peggy Pixley.

David P. Cabitto provided invaluable graphics support. Harriett R. Blood prepared the topography map, and Greenhorne and O'Mara prepared the other maps, all of which were reviewed by David P. Cabitto. The charts were prepared by David P. Cabitto, who also deserves special thanks for designing the illustrations for the book's cover and chapter title pages.

Finally, the authors acknowledge the generosity of the individuals and public and private agencies who allowed their photographs to be used in this study. They are indebted especially to those who contributed work not previously published.
