Louis Proyect gives Monthly Review a lot of credit. I might add that, as I said on the petition site, we don't charge copyright fees for our books to publishers in poor countries, so that they are able to sell our books for rock bottom prices, even much less than one dollar. We have no objection to taking payment for publication rights when a Press can obviously afford to pay us. But our overall goal is to publish in the interest of socialism. And my own policy has always been to pay for books myself when someone cannot afford them, or have the Press just donate them, as when prisoners ask for books.We're not perfect, but we do the best we can in this shitty world.
