Yes, and we have. The 5000$ we're asking for on Kickstarter amounts to about one-fifth of the cost of producing this book. The publishing house, the author and the university where he works, as well as academic research grants, have provided financial support towards the various aspects that go into making a book of this caliber. Any further donations will go towards printing additional copies of the book. Your backing is an invaluable expression of interest in the topic, which enables us to determine the level of public interest and involvement in the project.
