They're actually publishing a collection of his writings in English:

https://brill.com/view/title/22024

Excuse the academic pricing; I assume Haymarket Books are going to publish a paperback edition later this year if not into the next.

 No.1528

Great, now I can buy it and glue myself to an armchair

 No.1529

Holy shit this is great news, I don't have to learn Italian specifically for Bordiga anymore!

 No.1530

Be heroes and scan these if you buy them, they'd already be public domain anyways.

Italian Marxism has been getting a lot of attention in the English-speaking part of the world in recent years; it's quite nice.
>>1530
Why scan when you could just pool the money to get the pdf? I mean it's brill so it's not gonna be a print replica, but still.

>175€
holy shit, I could afford it but I'm not willing to pay this much for a fucking book

 No.1535

Academic publishers' rent-seeking ought to be dismantled, for real; I'll just make a request on aaaaarg. Having Bordiga's works read like they're not machine translated should be worth the price to somebody.

Based. My armchair will finally be used for its intended purpose.

 No.1540

>>1535
The economics of academic publishing is interesting because it's a sort of weirdly stealth-communist affair - the writers are paid almost entirely in prestige, and nobody pays for it other than university libraries. So you could *arguably* say that it's a form of public goods provision by bloated university endowments, just implemented in an incredibly dumb way.

it's out now; hopefully someone will rip the pdf soon

 No.2258

Not a leftcom, but Bordiga is such a fun read that I'll be very glad to revisit his works without having to stare at a computer screen.

No; unfortunately Brill only ever distributes pdfs from the looks of it.
