Welcome ... thank you for visiting.
David is working on his next book, which is in some ways a companion volume to his last book Doing the Continental. Like Continental it's about seeking identity and meaning, and building bridges between contending understandings. Representing the project is Chris Bucci of The McDermid Agency.
Continental is in its second printing and will reappear as a new iteration which explores the impact on North America of dramatic global change.
