3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
"A beauty pageant in Nigeria was the flashpoint for a cultural, political, and religious war in this impovershed country withs its crumbling infrastructure. Set against the conflict between the Muslim north and the Christian south, the Miss World content came to an ironic and devastating end as beautiful young ladies from many nations around the world, scantily clad by Muslim standards, were to compete during the holy month of Ramadan ... A 21-year old Nigerian woman journalist, Isioma Daniel, was covering the event for a local paper. She had studied abroad but had returned, believing she could make a contribution to her country. In her news article, 'The World at Their Feet' she casually wrote 'What would Mohammed think? He would probably have chosen a wife from the contestants.'

The office of her paper in northern Nigeria was burned to the ground. Before the dust settled, the pageant had been cancelled, the beauty queens had fled, and Isioma escaped into exile with a "fatwa" issued against her life"--Container
