A Letter that Made my Heart Glad

Not long ago I – finally – sent a copy of my book, Paradise Poisoned, to my dissertation advisor, Bob Holt. Holt is an internationally recognized, widely published scholar in the field of comparative politics and was an exceptionally supportive mentor.

Today I received a reply. Bob wrote:

"Thanks so much for your book. It’s a marvelous work! It’s got everything: thorough knowledge of the literature, impeccable field research, solid and appropriate analysis, carefully considered and powerful generalizations – and on top of it all, beautifully written. How proud I am of students like you. It makes it all worthwhile."
