That Woodard's book came out 30 years later and couldn't show deep structural changes says a lot. I do wonder, though, whether that will be true in 2041.
And as presented in the linked article (haven't read the actual book didn't even know it existed) the original Nine Nations (which I do have in my small library, it's fun to read from time to time) is a much better more well thought out, possibly even researched? book.
