Welcome to the Genius of Kinship blog!
In the past additions to a book had to await a new edition. These days authors can blog to update the readers on the ways in which more recent research confirmed or disproved the observations, hypotheses or theories advanced in their books.
New research pertaining to the issues raised in The Genius of Kinship emerges every day. Old research is also becoming increasingly available thanks to the new information-processing and information-sharing capabilities offered by software and the Internet. I will try to update my readers on the new findings in kinship studies, linguistics, genetics, ethnology or physical anthropology, which seem relevant to the themes discussed in the book. Sometimes it’ll be nitty-gritty factoids, sometimes full-fledged studies.
