    "According to Life on the Other Border, Farmworkers and Food Justice in Vermont (University of California Press, April 2019), by Teresa M. Mares, an anthropology professor at the University of Vermont, 18 percent of Vermont’s undocumented migrant farm workers are food insecure, defined as lacking reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food, compared to between 13 and 14 percent for Vermonters as a whole. The book is the first to measure food insecurity in this population." https://learn.uvm.edu/foodsystemsblog/2019/04/04/teresa-mares-new-book-migrant-farm-workers-food-insecure/

    A Garland of Bones: Child Runaways in India. By Jonah Steinberg New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 2019. xi, 337 pp. ISBN: 9780300222807 (cloth). "... in cities like New Delhi, where the historical legacies of empire and exploitation continue to reverberate throughout daily life, the presence of street children is not only ubiquitous, it is purposeful. In many cases, it is something that the children choose for themselves. Faced with various problems and with aspirations for more promising futures, these children leave their village homes and families, venture to the city, and try to make a life for themselves amid incredibly precarious and often life-threatening environments.
