Check with the Marxists Internet Archive before you buy a book, but in any case please feel free to give these works great reviews on Amazon or elsewhere! Also, check to get the best price, especially on out-of-print books. However, sometimes the pricing algorithm doesn’t work perfectly, so search around on individual book dealer sites such as Abe, Alibris and Biblio.
