Equally important to our efforts are all the people who actually use the books and also help promote all that we are doing. These include: everyone that’s bought our books; Professors who use our books in their courses; libraries who’ve added our books to their collections; and bookstores that stock our books on their shelves. And all the kind people who’ve recommended the books to others: person-to-person, with their online comment postings, and by contributions by email to:

Collaborative Media International (CMI) is a Fulbright Scholar research grant outcome and was founded by George F Roberson in 2009. CMI exists to support initiatives that promote constructive, creative and alternative engagements to enhance mutual respect and understanding between the peoples of the Morocco/North Africa-Middle East region and the USA/Europe and the rest of the world.

Unlike most academic books, all CMI books are priced at $25 or less making them available to people on almost any budget. But with such low prices it also means that supporting grants and volunteer partners are needed: we depend on your kind offers of support and assistance.

Manuscripts and other proposals are always welcomed and encouraged, send us an email: (at)
