Title: Other Glossaries Available


ScottH - January 6, 2009 10:32 PM (GMT)
In addition to this glossary source on Kasama, there are a number of others available on the web which might be helpful to folks. I have one myself at:
http://www.massline.org/Glossary/

This has been renamed, and is now at: http://www.massline.org/Dictionary/index.htm/

great work, scott. thanks for pointing out this glossary.

Is there some way we could lift (mirror, share) this glossary more prominently on Kasama, to make it available to more people?

Mike, the files are all posted at massline.org/Glossary/, so they can be copied to any other place if anybody wants to.

However, I've been making a lot of changes/additions to them the past few days and plan to continue doing that for a while at least. In other words, things are in a bit of a flux at the present time. So probably for now the best idea is just to post a link somewhere to massline.org/Glossary.

Another thing to consider is that--like everything I write--there is a certain amount of idiosyncrasy in some of my definitions. People should keep that in mind!

Also my comments on Avakian and the RCP, though brief, might possibly be too harsh for some Kasama folks.

By the way, I've borrowed some of your own comments for the entry on Instrumentalism, which you might want to check out and see if you want your name mentioned there.

I have changed the name of my "Glossary" to "Dictionary of Revolutionary Marxism". It is now at: http://www.massline.org/Dictionary/index.htm

This name change reflects the fact that the dictionary is getting larger and is starting to take on a somewhat broader character. There are still a great many gaps, of course!
