dear Chris, 
I'm delighted that radical anthropologists are still on the trail of Levy Strauss. Thirty some years ago my late wife did a masters' thesis on him  titled Trop Typique, at the University of Chicago. Her department refused to read it for more than a year because she wouldn't limit herself to tinkering around some mistakes of his but went head-on to attack his racism, his ignoring of the genocide going on while they people were declining and showing culture. As a Puerto Rican, she always felt like the studied more than the studier in that department, and eventual quit. She left academia and became a writer instead, Rosario Morales. So I wish you well and regret not being in London. Best wishes, Richard Levins
