Correction to my last post on Foster's "Marx's Ecology":

It was not in his book of 2000 but in his introduction to the July-August 
2005 issue of Monthly Review  that John Bellamy Foster promoted the 
"post-revolutionary" virtues of the Soviet Union despite the bad things that 
happened. ("The Renewing of Socialism: An Introduction": 
http://monthlyreview.org/2005/07/01/the-renewing-of-socialism-an-introduction/
)  This is discussed in my review of Foster's "Marx's Ecology" (August 2007, 
"A review of John Bellamy Foster's 'Marx's Ecology': Marx and Engels on 
protecting the environment ": http://www.communistvoice.org/40cMarx.html). In 
the review, I note that Foster glosses over the nature of the Soviet Union in 
his book, and later gives his apology for it as "post-revolutionary" in his 
article of 2005.
