  1. very few websites publish the pdf’s of books. Most want to sell the book. Yours is a unique location. Thanks for your work.

  2. hi all, super site.
    I´ve been looking hard for, but haven´t found, an e-book version of, the “History of the Party of Labor of Albania”. Any ideas?
    (cry along with me now: virtually all of my very large collection of print book M-L classics was wiped out by moisture… mold sucks!)

    Recently I read, “The Great Conspiracy” – awesome! That plus “The Real Stalin Series” (which I´m reading now) are, imho, the best source books to get an overview of Stalin.

  3. I´m also looking for an e-book version of Enver Hoxha´s Selected Works Volume 2 (I´ve downloaded volumes 1,3,4,5 +6, but can´t find V2 anywhere). Two more: “Among the Common Folk” by Hoxha and “40 Years of Socialist Albania” (I assume by the PLA). I´ve run into a version of “40 Years…” but it´s 105mb big and I´ve not be able to download it completely because that would take more than 10 hours non-stop. If it were divided into smaller pieces then it could be done in several steps.

  4. Dear Comrades,
    I am loking for books on Marxist Economy.It is a weak area of ML Movement.

  5. I’ve been looking (unsuccessfully so far) for an on-line copy of Red Papers 7 (RP7) (re: the Restoration of Capitalism in the USSR). Imho THE best thing the RU/RCP has ever done, by far, was write/publish RP7. (It was the one time they took a leading role in anything theoretical.)
    For those interested in this question, that, plus 3 other “works” (1 by Martin Nicolaus, 1 by Bill Bland, and the writings of Enver Hoxha on the subject) were/are the place to start.
    Your publication here of:
    ” The Soviet Union: Socialist or Social-Imperialist? Part I ” is very useful, thanx. Would you know how to track down (or can you publish) RP7 and also: the RCP’s: ” The Tarnished Socialism Thesis”

  6. I’m almost positive that I downloaded from this site the book, “The Great Conspiracy” by Sayers and Kahn; but now I don’t see it listed here on this page. Is it still available and I just too blind or dumb to find it here? If not, did you decide to no longer offer it; if so, can you tell us why not? It is a hugely important book.

  7. Dear Mr. Espresso,
    It says at the top that one might contact you; but I can’t figure out how to do that. I thought maybe clicking on your coffee-drinking image; but nothing happened. Would you please indicate how to reach you less publicly?

  8. Dear Pabolo!

  9. “The Real Stalin Series” was compiled by Dennis (Klo) McKinsey; and was posted by the American Party of Labor as an entire issue of their theoretical journal, Revolutionary Spirit, June 2011 issue .
    My initial critique of this work:
    1) The author poured a tremendous amount of work into producing this document/book. It represents a great contribution to getting an accurate and very complete view of J.V.S. – his stand, work/writings, even his personal–political character. imo, this is THE best work on this subject to date.
    2) The down-side of the book is that it is very hard to make use of because:
    a) it is extremely long, b) highly repetitive, c) relatively much too un-organized. d) there are a few quotes that seem to have slipped thru that are incorrect from an M-L-ist perspective and ARE attacks on J.V.S. Such a shame … makes me think that he ran out of energy/time to tidy it up enough.
    I am tempted to undertake the task of making it much more organized – but that’d be a huge amount of work; and I don’t even know who now “owns” the document and how one might get permission from them to take up such work, and if permission were given, what would be a correct/principled process of review/acceptance for such a re-working.
    Hope this helps,
