Fourth International

Publishing Livio Maitan - an update

Friday 7 December 2018, by Alex de Jong

The call for donations we launched has been a success. Several thousand euros have been donated. In addition, we have received a commitment to donate a considerable amount of labour to finish the translation whch is now moving ahead rapidly. With these donations, the IIRE and Resistance Books can now plan the publication of the book in mid-2019.

We want to thank all donors for their support. We work on a limited budget, and much of the work needed to publish our books is done on a volunteer basis - but costs for editing, distribution and promotion cannot be avoided. Donations make it possible to cover these.

When we launched this project, we hoped to be able to publish in 2018, on time for the eightieth anniversary of the Fourth International. Unfortunately, the project was delayed. In order to have a well-produced version of this book, we had to postpone the publication, and renew our call for donations.

We have still not completely met our goal so please don’t hesitate to share this appeal with like-minded friends. To give you a taste of the book, you can read Daniel Bensaïd’s introduction to the book “Livio Maitan: History wrinkle-free”. Please feel free to share the appeal with other people who might be interested in the project.

We will continue to publish updates on the progress of the project and the publication date. People who have donated 40 euros or more (including in several donations) will receive a copy of the book when it is published. Make sure you have sent your contact details!
