What People are Saying About This

Janis Thiessen

"The conclusion reached by Luann Good Gingrich in her book Out of Place is a powerful one. It is an important statement for policy makers and ordinary citizens alike, and a message that is not heard enough these days."

Timothy Epp

"Luann Good Gingrich demonstrates a robust knowledge of social theory and literature on Mennonite migration between Ontario and Mexico. Her breadth and depth of knowledge of social theory, especially that of Wacquant and Bourdieu, are impressive."

Mary Romero

"Out of Place challenges our thinking about serving a population that need services but do not conform to the capitalist commodity system. Both researchers and students will find this work to be a helpful addition to considering the complexity of social exclusion of religious groups desiring to remain outside mainstream culture."
