Forthcoming Book by Jonah Steinberg!

It’s official — Jonah Steinberg’s second book, A Garland of Bones, is under contract with Yale University Press. A Garland of Bones considers child runaways in postcolonial context from spatial, ethnographic, and historical vantage points, with emphases on relationships between rural change and children’s departures and on the place of runways as undesirable subjects in campaigns of urban cleansing. Jonah’s book is concerned with the balance of well-patterned cultural pathways, on the one hand, and the intimate experience of historical crisis, on the other, in children’s autonomous decisions to leave home for the city. The book, currently forecast for Yale’s Fall 2017 catalog, is to be published in the Agrarian Studies series edited by James C. Scott.
