    This seems to be a case of of choosing quantity over quality. Gee’s piece is akin to a blog post and should have been posted on the Interpreter blog. It doesn’t deserve publication in a journal.

      You’ve never noticed the short book reviews and even shorter blog notes that appear, in large quantities, in virtually all academic journals?

        I’ve noticed them. I don’t recall seeing one of such little substance, however.

      I’ve seen plenty of two or three page reviews of books (and even stand-alone articles) in places like the Journal of Near Eastern Studies or the Journal of Biblical Literature. It’s a common practice (at least in my field of study).
