           To which I'd add works by Karl Lowith, Robert J. Antonio, and
Derek Seyer, which I found via a search typing in "Marx and Weber"
at the vile booksellers Well what don't they sell now that they
do auctions too- yesterday I typed in Adolph Reed, the Black academic active
in the Labor Party, who has a new book on Black politics in the U.S.A.
published by Univ. of Minnesota Press. The title has the word"jug" in the
title. The auction part of the page thought I might like a jug! Type in book
and you might get a suggestion to place a bid on a bookmark! Type in the
word excrement and see what their computer offers to sell 'ya. Of course,
what isn't for sale now that the whole world is ensnared in the circuits of
capitalist production, destruction, distribution and exchange.)
