The link goes to Tapper's blog, where he reveals that Duke University Press will publish Ann Dunham's anthropology dissertation, which she completed in 1982:
The 368-page book is based on Dunham's 14 years of research into the metalworking industries of the Javanese village of Kajar, exploring how Kajar's industry offers a viable economic alternative in an area of rural Southeast Asia normally dependent upon rice. "Surviving against the Odds: Village Industry in Indonesia" will sell for $27.95, and will be revised and edited by two anthropologists: Dunham's graduate adviser, Alice G. Dewey, and one of Dunham's fellow graduate students, Nancy I. Cooper.
