I'm not sure that this was cross-posted into the Marxism list, but just
in case it wasn't, I'm doing so now. There are 2 items that I want to
recommend especially: the seminar tapes by David Harvey and Leo Panitch.
I attended these and recommend them highly. Also, for Chris Burford's
information, there's a tape of Joel Kovel speaking on the (psychological)
Roots of US Anticommunism.
