I just received this note from an archaeologist Nick Kardulias concerning
world systems theory. Thought I would pass it on.

Dear Mark,
Below is the material Chris Chase-Dunn just sent me about
our thematic section in his journal. His initial blurb can probably
be introduced by saying something like: "Prof. Chistopher Chase-Dunn
(Johns Hopkins University), editor of the Journal of World-Systems
Research, announces the "publication" of a thematic section of interest
to anthropologists".
Thanks again.

Subj: Re: Thematic section in JWSR

here is copy for the announcement and table of contents of the special
thematic section of jwsr. you may want to change this. go ahead.

Volume 2 of the _Journal of World-Systems Research_ now contains a new
special thematic section on anthropology and the world-system.
This section was edited by Nick Kardulias of Kenyon College. It contains
an introduction by Nick and eleven articles by ethnographers and
archaeologists about their use of world-systems concepts. Also included
is a witty commentary on the articles by Darrell La Lone. I will post
the table of contents separately.
