Libel Law, Political Criticism, and Defamation of Public Figures: The United States, Europe, and Australia

By Peter N. Amponsah | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I owe all that I am to God and I attribute my academic achievements to his Church that offered me the opportunity to advance my career and scholarship. So it is my pleasure to acknowledge my indebtedness to the Society of St. Peter the Apostle, a branch of the Office of the Propagation of the Faith in Rome, Italy, that sponsored part of my Master's Degree studies as well as awarded me a grant for my Ph.D. studies.

While I ascribe my career achievements to the Church, I am forever grateful to the following Bishops in Ghana, West Africa: Most Reverend Peter K. Sarpong (the Metropolitan Archbishop of Kumasi) for discovering my talents and being the brain behind my career in Communication Studies; Most Reverend Thomas K. Mensah (Bishop of Obuasi) for allowing me to continue my studies at the doctoral level, and Most Reverend Joseph Osei-Bonsu (Bishop of KonongoMampong) for being a mentor to me at each important stage of my career. Also, I thank Most Rev. Wilton D. Gregory (Bishop of Belleville, Illinois) and Most Rev. David E. Fellhauer (Bishop of Victoria, Texas) for the numerous ways they supported my stay and studies in the United States.

For the magnificent assistance received in my academic studies, special acknowledgement must be made to all my professors. Particular acknowledgment must be given to Professor Robert Spellman of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, for his invaluable encouragement and direction during my entire doctoral studies.

A special appreciation should go to Mrs. Doreen Osei Bempah, who is more than a sister to me. She deserves credit for her irreplaceable role as well as her extraordinary support to every endeavor toward my academic achievement. Finally, I thank Mrs. Cathy Cerame, for her assistance, encouragement, and prayers.
