This chapter discusses a world of letters that reveals how a man on death row thinks, how scientists feel about their controversial workplaces, and how an anthropologist ponders issues of American survival. It elaborates how letters humanize life in a technologically driven world and connect academics to life outside the Ivory Tower. It also describes letters as a primary source for historians to document history in a culture where history is considered an absurdity. The chapter provides inside information about the growth and merging of an anthropologist's professional and public careers. It covers letters that illustrate how collegiality works, whether as constructive critique or supporting possibilities.
