What do four years of graduate school, six trips to South Africa and a million hours spent writing amount to? In this case, a book deal with an overseas publisher willing to make this research available to the wider reading public. Poetry it is not (though one could make an argument for poetic justice) but this book could be a great break from fluffy summer reading and a gateway to some thought-provoking issues on race, work and change in a fascinating and complex country.

“Working in the New South Africa: An Ethnographic Approach to Affirmative Action” is available through Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble and other great book dealers.
