         Istvan and I have arm-wrestled over this-- especially over the
similarity of the titles; he says he worked for 20 years on his under that
title. Of course, the titles really are different (mine is  _Beyond
Capital_ ). Historical Materialism asked me to review his book, I think in
1993 or 1994), and I rashly agreed but only if he agreed to review my book.
Nothing ever came of it--- I think I got off easy.
