AKAMAC E-text Links
These links contact E-text relevant to the history of economic thought or social thought. I have about 170 authors and other few materials in this page. And it contains not only e-text links, but also brief biographical and reference materials on authours featured. Akamac E-text Links is constantly under construction. New links are added, errors are corrected. Fortunately for my work, many sites put links to this page and are a great encouragement to me. Many Thanks.
My project just take off! Firstly, I choose to start converting Marx's "Das Kapital" that I have partially translated from German to Japanese and has not been published on other Web sites to my knowledge. Of course, "Das Kapital" is original text (German). Text I used is the edition of "Marx-Engels Werke" (MEW), i.e. the forth edition. Stepping on it gradually, I wish I could perform this and follow more famous texts in the original for the purpose of study and research.
Now, I put up Marx's "Theorien ?ber den Mehrwert" with assistance of Hans Ehrbar who is my good cooperator.
New materials that seem to be intersting and exciting have been added to this corner.
