Rather than for academics, my PhD dissertation was always intended more for activists, policy-makers, and concerned citizens.
Despite my efforts to make it accessible and limit jargon, however, it seems that a document in PhD dissertation format just won’t have that broad an audience. As such — once I have a job — I think I should re-write the argument as a book for a popular audience. That would expand the readership, and also let me write it the way I want and not to meet the requirements of academics.
I will be producing a new version of the dissertation with some minor corrections, but that too will have to wait until I am employed and able to pay my bills.
