Subject: Marx & Engels on CD-Rom


Following up you recent reference to the Cominsane Press CD-Rom
version of Capital vol 1, for about US$10, OPE-L might be interested
in a CD-Rom called 'Classics in Politics: Marx and Engels". It
contains unabridged versions of the Lawrence and Wishart/Progress
Publishers editions of *all* of the following:

The 3 volumes of Capital
Marx's Capital - a Student Edition (ed C.J. Arthur - hope you are
getting some royalties Chris?!)
The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte
The Civil War in France
The Class Struggle in France
Critique of the Gotha Programme
The German Ideology (ed. C.J. Arthur - and again!)
Preface to a Critique of Political Economy
Value, Price and Profit

The Condition of the Working Class in England
A History of the Communist League
Ludwig Feuerbach and the end of Classical German Philosophy
The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State
The Part Played by Labour in the Transition from Ape to Man
The Peasant Question in France and Germany
Socialism: Utopian and Scientific

About 5K pages in all.

These discs do not seem to have all the multi-media bells and whistles that Cominsane Editons seem to have, but the following speca are mentioned in the flyer I saw:

Book-like text (they use Adobe Acrobat Technology - a Reader is included on the disc) Sophisticated Search Facilities Click-on Indexes Printing and Text Selection Zoom up to 800% Multi-Platform (Windows 3.1, 95/98 and NT; Apple Mac; (most) Unix)

The CD-Rom is sold in the UK by:

The Electric Book Company Ltd 20 Cambridge Drive London SE12 8AJ

tel/fax +181 488 3872

It costs 29.95 (no postage or packing in the UK) Ref: EB 0002 ISBN 1 901843 01 7

Perhaps you would care to post this out to OPE-L? It could be useful for teaching - overcome a few library constraints, perhaps?
