Dear Dr. Kow,
I am delighted by your expression of interest in the bibliography. Copies
(in hardcover only) are available from: Greenwood Press, 88 Post Road West,
P.O. Box 5007, Westport, Connecticut 06881-5007, U.S.A. Their e-mail

Regretfully the price is quite high: US $245.00 plus postage. I would have
been much happier if it could have been kept under $100 so that individuals
could more easily afford it. But at least it has been published, after
nearly twenty-two years of work on my part.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can respond to any further
questions on your part.
Frank Joseph Shulman
P.S. Your own dissertation is entered as entry no.6979. Thank you once
again for responding to my inquiry about your thesis at the time that I was
preparing this entry.
