Paperback Edition Release: Towards a Critique of Bourgeois Economics

Cover: Sekine – Towards a Critique

Towards a Critique of Bourgeois Economics
by Thomas T. Sekine
Edited by John R. Bell

“It would take a scholar with a formidable intellect to be able to significantly refine the work of Kôzô Uno, the brilliant Japanese economist who had advanced the most sophisticated and convincing reconstruction of Marx’s unfinished masterpiece, Capital, to have hitherto been attempted. This impressive essay collection drawing from Thomas Sekine’s work from the 1970s down to the present day and covering much of the full gamut of Sekine’s wide ranging intellectual interests, includes discussions of the correspondence of Hegel’s dialectic and the dialectic of capital, the dialectic as the basis for social science, the defense of value theory, the proper solutions to both the dialectical and mathematical transformation problems and the ex-capitalist transition. This is required reading for any serious heterodox economist, whether Marxian or otherwise.”

Orgasmo a Mosca

Edgar Hilsenrath
traduzione di Roberta Gado

Cover of “Orgasmo a Mosca” (Italian edition)

Nino Pepperoni, boss dei boss della mafia americana, è disposto a fare qualsiasi cosa per la sua unica figlia, la trentenne Anna Maria. Durante un soggiorno a Mosca la donna conosce Sergej Mandelbaum, ebreo “tiratardi e pelandrone e traduttore”, con il quale raggiunge per la prima volta l’orgasmo. Decide di sposarlo a tutti i costi, anche se Sergej, segnalato sulla lista nera del KGB, non può uscire dall’URSS per vie legali. Allora Anna Maria si fa mettere incinta per costringere il padre ad aiutarla a portare in America il futuro marito. Ha inizio così un viaggio rocambolesco ricco di colpi di scena. Una trama provocatoria e surreale per una sex and crime story decisamente sopra le righe.
