I don't know that its that hard to find reviewers: Anthro-l along has
over 800 recipients, and has been fairly active of late: surely what we need
is a better process for identifying potential reviewrers?
With regard to the future of the political economy of publishing, I agree
with Rick that the systemic exploitation of intellectual property needs
and is inevitably due for re-orientation.
