Once again we owe Mitch Abidor a huge debt. Portions of the book previously
translated are at MIA (see the Jaures archive), but this edition is clearly
the fruits of a huge and lengthy labor.
See also the books Mitch edited here:

and do a search for "Abidor" at marxists.org for a taste of the incredibly
wide-ranging materials he's translated over the years.
