While the debate rages about AA, I remind anthro-l subscribers (the computer
literate) that there is a new and (I hope) exciting electronic journal
called the _Journal of Political Ecology: Case Studies in History and the
Social Sciences_ edited by two anthropologists, James Greenberg and Thomas
Park, out of the University of Arizona.

To view it, one can telnet and then go to their electronic
journals option, or (as in my case) telnet They also run a
gopher hole with resources in political economy and ecology.

The flagship article, "Political Ecology," by Greenberg and Park, is
well-worth reading and places their interests in the broader set of debates
in anthropology.

I would imagine that archaeologists and bioculturally oriented physical
anthropologists would find this trajectory and this e-journal as relevant as
socio-cultural anthropologists. I know that Jim and Tad are seeking good
submissions, and being an e-journal, one has much greater flexibility in
size, etc.

To subscribe, one joins the Political Ecology Society, and one gets the
annual journal diskette, a postscript printer, and various other perks,
including advantages upon submission of articles. In order to subscribe,
e-mail or, or write PESO
at the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology, University of Arizona,
Tucson, AZ 85721, USA.

Enjoy the alternatives. Joe Heyman
