A Dreadful Deceit

I have now finished A Dreadful Deceit, the extremely important new book by the great American historian Jacqueline Jones. I shall have a good deal more to say about it when I again have access to a functioning computer, in ten days, but I wanted to give you all a heads up that this is a brilliant book that anyone interested in questions of race and class in capitalist America should read.

I hope, when you review "A Dreadful Deceit," that you explain why the author is a good teacher (assuming that she is).

And regarding the iPhone issue: I completely sympathize. On a recent trip, my wife and I decided to rely on her mini-iPad in lieu of dragging along a laptop. I hated it. Typing was too burdensome. I am now investigating light weight, foldable keyboards, such as this:

Apparently, there is a broad range of such keyboards on the market, dedicated to those of us who resist typing on little touch screens.

Wolff, can you recommend any books that defend the Marxian notion that class is the ultimate determinant of the functions of capitalism, over and above race and sex?
