Waiting for Foucault, Still A small, pocket-sized book by Sahlins. Published in 2002 by Prickly Paradigm, along with other works is now available for free online(in pdf).

A knowing, humorous survey of the various branches of academic social anthropology originally delivered as an entertaining after dinner set up for the Huxley Lecture by Marshall Sahlins for the Fourth Decennial Conference of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the Commonwealth, Oxford, 29 July 1993. Now in an expanded, fourth edition.

The link is either broken or the publisher is kaput-- I found the little book at Amazon for 9 euros. Would like to download it, but Prickly Paradigm Press seems to have pooped out.
Sounds like it's the sort of thing I'd like.
