Muslims in Europe:
John Lawton, who researched and wrote most of this issue, and Tor Eigeland, who photographed it, have teamed up twice since 1976 to produce or contribute to full issues of Aramco World on a single subject: "Partners in Growth," January-February, 1977, and "Truckers East!" November-December, 1977. As a team they were also working on a full issue on Arab aid projects when this issue—which opens Aramco World's 30th year of publication—went to press.
Eigeland and Lawton have also worked with Stanley Bonnett before; he was a Middle East correspondent in Beirut in the 1960's while Lawton was UPI Bureau Chief there and Eigeland represented the Black Star photo agency. As a newspaperman Bonnett has worked for several British papers including the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, and as a free-lance author has written The Price of Admiralty, (Robert Hall, London, 1970). He has also just finshed a historical novel on the Aden conflict entitled The Gates of Empire.
Other contributors include Steffi Fields, a free-lance writer in London who formerly worked for Women's Wear Daily in New York and London, and as a free-lancer, has published article in Esquire, Punch and Ladies' Home Journal. Additional material for this issue was supplied by Robert Arndt, Assistant Editor; and William Mulligan, as unofficial historian of Aramco World and, until his retirement in November 1978, a veteran of Aramco's Arabian research team, specializing in the history and culture of Saudi Arabia. —The Editors
