Riassunto: Postmonitions of a Peripatetic Professor is a colorful memoir by Peter Rose, an octogenarian sociologist, ethnographer, writer, teacher and world traveler. Here he describes his academic life and some of his extracurricular excursions. With a foreword by his former student, playwright and novelist Andrea Hairston, the narrative includes occasional extracts from his own previous writings.
"A riveting and original autobiography that reads like an intellectual and political Bildungsroman ...Peter Rose teaches us how powerful learning becomes when one has mastered the skill to pass it along in splendidly written prose." Saverio Giovacchini, Associate Professor of History, University of Maryland
