Carmel is a Professor in the Anthropology Department at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The Reb and the Rebel is an apparent departure from her main fields of interest, namely archaeology and ethnography, but her eclectic style of scholarship operates just as well in the discovery and analysis of early Jewish settlement in South Africa.
