Uh, clearly I meant "allow me to...".  While I'm noting this typo, allow me

is Pathfinder Press and it's the place to go if you're a Wall Street
brokerage firm looking to get some printing done cheap, or if you're looking
for some great marxist titles.

Incredibly, Pathfinder threatened to sue the Marxist Internet Archive (MIA)
if they published anything that was copyright by them.  This is tragic
because Pathfinder has some excellent titles, including:

*The 4 book Teamsters series by Farrel Dobbs which tells of the pitched
labor struggles of the 1930s.

*Everything by George Novack, including "Socialism and Humanism" and
"Socialism and Democracy".

*Titles on the history of the womens' movement by Evelyn Reed.

*The speeches of Thomas Sankara and Maurice Bishop, leaders of revolutions
in Burkina Faso and Grenada, whose speeches are not available anywhere else

*A number of new titles on the Cuban Revolution.

***Check it all out at the new, snazzy web-site!
