Peter sez:


April 10, 2012, I heard Paul Mason (author of a much-recommended book about the working class movement across time and space) talk about his new book, which has, I understand, the same title as that below (and above).

Washington, DC 20036

This academic year is the third in a historic low period for full-time faculty salaries, which failed to meet the rate of inflation again this year.
