What People are Saying About This

Joan W. Moore

"I like this book very much. . . . It’s a wonderful methodological dose of salts for anyone doing research ‘on’ so-called pariah populations, where the researcher is essentially called upon to interpret the population to the conventional world. . . . A book about the field experiences of a woman of color with women of color is virtually unique, as far as I know."
