About the Author

Catherine Bolten is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame.


"A profoundly touching book." -- Joanna Lewis * Times Higher Education Supplement *
"Bolten does a great job of depicting the life histories of seven residents of Makeni experiencing [Sierra Leone's] civil war in different capacities and from various angles. . . . Reading their stories intertwined with the history of the civil war and Bolten's insightful comments was very intriguing indeed." * Oral History Review *
