Thanks for translating as much Tugan into English as you have, Alejandro! 
In reading your translation of his 1901 edition, I was surprised at how
un-Marxist it is (Hilferding's opinion notwithstanding).

Luxemburg took on Tugan in her Chapter 23 of *Accumulation of Capital*. 
Was she congratulated by Lenin or Kautsky or Hilferding or Bukharin?  No. 
Did they try to deepen her critique?  No.  Did they try to build their own
deeper critique?  No.  Result: Tugan's ideas penetrate, Luxemburg's are
pushed aside.
