    This was an interesting read. Though the author clearly has experience doing field work, he incorporated quantitative data and broadened his scope beyond the traditional ethnography.

    Read this on a plane to Cali from the Midwest. The guy next to me kept trying to talk to me. But this book had a hold on me. It ripped my heart out. Once a professor told me that I could be an anthropologist or an activist but not both. Reading this satisfied the anthropologist in me but brought out the activist. My professor was a douche.
