Why should you read "Americans Do Their Business Abroad?" Because there is no better source on earth of non-fiction that reads like a wild trip to fantasyland, is that good enough for you?
These insightfully sensitive and hilarious stories, written by RPCVs (returned peace corps volunteers), offer us an intellectually stimulating yet highly entertaining window into the wacky world of Peace Corps.
Or if you simply wish to know FIRSThand what's happening in the THIRD world, or SECOND even, don't log on to some pathetically fancy encyclopedia, and please don't bother with the sterile pages of the CIA World Fact Book, just honor America's bravest college-educated volunteers by reading our stories.
We RPCVs volunteered to spend at least two prime years of our lives in the most remote, exotic, and crazy places on earth. We went with the highest-minded and principled intentions (usually) to represent The United States of America (more or less), only to return entirely humbled, but with amazing stories about the godforsaken land(s) where were we fought (and usually lost) the good fight. The very least any American intellectual who was too chicken to join the Peace Corps right out of college can do is buy a collection of our best stories.
Peace, Love, and malaria.
