David while this is an appropriate question, it does not mean (and
correct me if I'm wrong or putting words in your mouth) that Poulantzas
is immune from acid-tongue, scientific and literary criticism.  I have
read selected works from Poulantzas, but critics can and do maintain the
integrity of his views when criticizing him.  Also, many of us know that
Poulantzas developed important insights.
