Getting by in Postsocialist Romania

On Wednesday, we had another Central Authors talk; this one by the ever-entertaining Professor of Anthropology David Kideckel on his new book Getting By in Postsocialist Romania.

As he himself admits, it's a depressing book, but his research for it sure sounded fun: sitting in bars with Romanian miners drinking, smoking, and bragging about one's sexual prowess.

Anthropology?! That sounds like an AAUP social to me!
