im thinking about writing something on marxism and law sometime in the
near future.  i have a few references already, but if anyone could add
to what i have below id be grateful.  if anyone could suggest certain
issues that would be good to take up (conflicts within marxism on the
subject and between marxism and other schools of thought), that would
be great too.  thanks and my apologies if this kind of post is looked
down upon.  im new to all this, so i dont have anything to offer the
real discussions.
