Last week's American Anthropological Association annual meeting in Philadelphia was very exciting for Duke Press. Not only did we get to participate at the book exhibit and meet up with our authors, but we also had the book launch for S. Ann Dunham's Surviving against the Odds: Village Industry in Indonesia. There was a presidential session for the book, and we also had a reception that included Nancy I. Cooper, Alice G. Dewey, and Maya Soetoro-Ng.
A view of all the amazing books at our booth!
