Before the Bottomore edition was published,  there were seminars at the
New School on Hilferding's *Finance Capital*  offered by Anwar Shaikh.  
I think they used a different translation so it might be useful to get a copy
and compare the (3?) different translations with the original German edition.

Also, I think the Bottomore edition was used in some of Anwar's classes
since so he might know about some translation problems.

In solidarity, Jerry
