Anthropoliteia and the Political and Legal Anthropology Review (PoLAR)

Two bits of news concerning both Anthropoliteia and the journal Political and Legal Anthropology Review (PoLAR):

First, we’re all so excited that our own William Garriot, along with friend-of-Anthropoliteia Heath Cabot, have taken over as co-editors of the journal.  We can’t wait to see what a Cabot-Garriot tenure will bring!

Also of note to readers of this blog: PoLAR just recently published an Open Access Virtual Issue on “The Promise and Pathos of Law,” which includes several recent and classic articles on the topic (including my own article “Of Heroes and Polemics: the ‘policeman’ in urban ethnography“) as well as new and original “supplementary” postscripts in which each author reflects on their contribution through the lens of time.  My own essay focuses on the exciting development of “anthropology of policing” since the publication of “Of Heroes…” in 2010.
