I dedicate this book to the Iyioke family: first, to my dear wife Ifeoma Chika Iyioke, PhD., our sons IkeNna Jr. [10], ArinzeChukwu [7], IliloChi [5], and daughter SopuruChi [3 months!]; whose moral and material support (plus emotional ‘harassment’) have made my experience at Michigan State University a life-long lesson to cherish. It is in them that I find my anchor.

Above all, I owe everything to God Almighty who is ever faithful even in my unfaithfulness.

We are who we are because of where we belong.
