From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

...and tell you that one of the greatest ethnographers of the nineteenth century was Honoré de Balzac. Yup. If you read (as I do) the Pléiade edition of La Comédie Humaine, you know that this chap was way ahead of William Edgar Geil and Bronislaw Malinowski.

There are a whole bunch of Tome(s) there. Brilliant, all twelve.

And if you have only read Le Père Goriot, you have a whole (anthropological/literary) education in front of you.
