I'm not familiar with that book, but it does sound interesting. As for similar books, the title alone contains a whole lot of possible similarities. Which ones were you thinking of.
I don't think the nations of Africa should be held to lesser standards. The polution we're talking about has more than local consequences.
Of course I would. You should keep in mind that MSU is also a good school for Africa, just not as elaborate as IU. MSU also does good work in applied anthropology. You might consider getting in touch with Rita Gallan (Although she may have retired by now). Her husband, Bernard was a professor of mine and he's good about general advice, but his specialization is Taiwan , as is Rita's). I'm not sure if they are even in East Lansing now, but if you can find them, they can give you advice "in the flesh." One other person you might try to find, if she's still in East Lansing, is Kim Lay, who was a student of mine at UofL. She left anthropology because she found it didn't quite fit what she wanted, but she can help as well. Unfortunately, I don't know as many people at the other schools you've mentioned. Almost all the people who were at IU (I think you're right about the distance) when I was there are gone.
Thanks for the compliment. That sort of feedback (even in the negative) is rare. Each one is an ego boost. If you ever want to talk to me about one issue or another, don't hesitate to contact me.
