  1. Erratum: this entry is a Ph.D. dissertation, not a published book (i.e., it’s not available in print) — Basiouny, Dalia. The Powerful Voice of Women Dramatists in the Arab American Theatre Movement. City University of New York, 2009. The same writer has some related articles in journals, however.
