One night, anthropologist Cathy Winkler awoke from a deep sleep to discover a rapist standing by her bed. For the rest of that night, she lived a woman's worst nightmare as she was repeatedly raped and beaten by the stranger. The pain of those four hours was dwarfed by the frustration of her decade-long fight to find the rapist and bring him to justice. Winkler, a brilliant observer and ethnographer, chronicles her story of triumph over adversity. One Night is an inspirational work, and it provides a model of how researchers can turn the lens inward and incisively examine ourselves and our own world.
