> A friend in India asked me to pass this along:
>
> REQUEST TO CIRCULATE THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOOK
> 'AN INTRODUCTION TO MARX'S 'CAPITAL' (in 3 volumes)
>
> I am sending this mail to those persons, journals and organizations,
> whose addresses I know directly or secured through other friends and
> journals, who might be
> interested in Marx's important work 'Capital'.
>
> Please try to circulate the information as widely as possible.
>
> As you know, we (my friends and myself) had brought out the book AN
> INTRODUCTION TO MARX'S 'CAPITAL' (in 3 volumes) in December 1999. We
> brought out this book with a view that there is a need to bring out a
> reader-friendly introduction since most readers find the 'original'
> difficult to understand.
>
> We brought out these volumes at a very low price compared to the
> 'market' price. (The price of the three hardbound volumes running about
> two thousand pages is
> 35 dollars).
>
> Some individuals procured the book and recommended it to others for
> reading, some journals both in India and abroad (in USA,UK) reviewed it,
> and some
> journals published advertisements of the book free of cost (in Germany,
> Greece) and some at concessional rates (in USA,UK). Some organizations
> put the
> information in their websites. Yet the book needs some more support in
> terms of circulation of its copies as well as information about it.
>
> I, therefore, request you to send me some more addresses of individuals,
> journals and organizations that might be interested in the book. I also
> request you circulate
> once again the information about the book in your correspondence,
> journals and websites. You may kindly use/edit the attached document
> [see below] according to your convenience in your correspondence,
> publications or websites.
>
> Looking forward to your co-operation in circulating this 'introduction'
> to the most important work of Marx.
