I would like to give my sincere appreciation to my graduate assistants past and present for the successful completion of this book, especially, Shraddha Tomar, Niiakrofi Smartabbey and Jay Patel.
This work has benefitted from the works of many African and other world researchers. Any remaining errors and omissions are mine.
