New Fall Magazines: Radical Anthropology and more…

October 2, 2010 at 4:40 pm (Uncategorized)

Ads for various e-book readers are everywhere, and I must admit to being mildly curious about them; However, I can’t spark enough interest to actually get one.

Call me old-fashioned, but the turning of pages is still attractive. And that extends to magazines as well.

The new Radical Anthropology is out. Number 4 has articles on Avatar, neanderthals and an interview with Chris Knight on Chomsky. One of my favourite magazines, it can be downloaded from their site here, but for old traditionalists I’ll soon have hard copies.

On a totally differnt topic, the new issues of Uncut and Mojo are well worth picking up, not just for the features on the Clash and McCartney, but also for the rather good CDs which accompany the issues. Uncut has a selection of tracks culled from Joe Strummer’s radio programme and Mojo has Let It Be as recorded by such artists as Beth Orton, Pete Molinari, Wilko Johnson and others. The free CDs are often hit and miss, but both of these are quite exceptional.

And in the upcoming department, a new Aufheben should be out soon, and a new Internationalist Perspective in a month or so.
