** "pdf Zones of Suffering Ethics and Ethnography" This paper was written by Dr. Nita Schechet and myself around the year 2000. It was rejected from 3 main anthropological journals. We felt at the time that the rejection was political , and still think it is one of the most important papers we wrote. Happy to share it with you.
