For nearly 60 years Peter Rose has been studying, teaching and writing about human encounters and interactions. Long anchored in Northampton,Massachusetts, where he is Sophia Smith Professor Emeritus of Sociology and Anthropology and Senior Fellow of the Kahn Liberal Arts Institute at Smith College, he is a world traveler -- and a prize-winning travel writer. One commentator said of the most recent book by this academic sojourner, "For those who love to read and love to travel, here are forty-eight engaging commentaries by a modern-day Mark Twain."
Peter is the author of seven books -- They and We, The Subject is Race, Strangers in Their Midst, Mainstream and Margins, Tempest-Tost, Guest Appearances and Other Travels in Time and Space, With Few Reservations, and the recently published Postmonitions of a Peripatetic Professor. He is editor of many others, including The Ghetto and Beyond, Americans from Africa, The Study of Society, Seeing Ourselves, Nation of Nations, Views from Abroad, Professorial Passions, and The Dispossessed: An Anatomy of Exile.
