The AP is reporting that Duke University Press will publish an edited version of Ann Dunham's dissertation on rural craftsmen in Indonesia this fall. Dunham wrapped up the study in 1995, three years before her death.
From the story:
Duke marketing manager Emily Young said the foreword was written by the president's half-sister and Dunham's daughter, Maya Soetoro-Ng (so-TOR'-oh ING).
The book is based on Dunham's 14 years of research among village industry workers on the Indonesian island of Java.
Young said the project came to the university's press arm because it has a good reputation for publishing anthropological studies.
