Louis,

I subscribed to your discussion list for a few days - but couldn't hack
the quantity of postings. Can you post this on the list for me?

Some people were interested in Paul Mattick's writings. I haven't read
any myself (yet), but in my capacity as manager of the Resistance
Bookshop here in Melbourne (run by the Democratic Socialist Party) I
have access to the Merlin Press catalogue; they publish four of
Mattick's books. The titles and Merlin's comments on them are below:

ANTI-BOLSHEVIK COMMUNISM
Mattick defends the "Council Communists" and this revives a debate that
he claims has never been resolved.

ECONOMIC CRISIS AND CRISIS THEORY
Paul Mattick examines the crisis cycle both as it has asserted itself
historically and with respect to the responses it has evoked in economic
theory.

ECONOMICS, POLITICS AND THE AGE OF INFLATION
"Mattick's sharp, Marxist interpretation of our contemporary capitalist
crisis is a welcome alternative to the increasingly sterile ruminations
of conventional economists." Robert Lekachman, City University of New
York.

MARX AND KEYNES
The Limits of the Mixed Economy
Paul Mattick's critique of Keynes anticipates the collapse of Keynesian
solutions in a sustained capitalist crisis.
