To Know the Place
An Anthropologist Remembers A Michigan Town
by Gary A. Wright
$ 2.99 SALE PRICE
$ 12.99 Original Price

A scholar goes home again through the eyes of his discipline and sees things he never saw before. In this case, the home is Berrien Springs, Michigan, and this anthropologist's personal reflection offers a compelling analysis of what small-town life means—and what it misses.

Useful for lay readings and as a supplemental text in courses in American culture and social history, Midwestern history, recent U.S. history, ethnographic methods, and related areas.

Gary A. Wright is professor of anthropology at SUNY, Albany. He has devoted more than 30 years to the study of people and their pasts.
