Message from Science & Society

Science & Society
Special 75th Anniversary Celebration
Friday, October 14, 7:30 p.m.

Dear Friend,

As you probably know, Vol. 76, No. 1 of *Science & Society* is in
production, which means that we have completed 75 years -- three quarters
of a century! -- of continuous publication of first-order research in
Marxist theory, philosophy and historical/cultural studies. This is a
remarkable achievement, and one that is unique, worldwide.

We are celebrating (as well we should!) by holding a special 75th
Anniversary Party, on *Friday, October 14*, at the Brecht Forum in New
York City. The Brecht Forum is at West Street between Bank and Bethune,
just south of 14th Street on the far west side of Manhattan. You will
find a map and other directions at brechtforum.org. Join us at 7:30;
program begins at 8.

Planning is just getting under way. The keynote speaker will be Dr.
Gerald Horne, a long-time member of our Editorial Board and a prolific
social and cultural historian. Many recent authors, from several
continents, will be present, and will be introduced and honored for their
contributions. We have several musical and artistic components lined up;
it is too soon to announce them, but be assured that this will be a
memorable event -- politically, intellectually, culturally . . . and
gastronomically!

As the capitalist economic and social crisis deepens across the globe, it
is important to mark our victories and achievements. S&S is just one
small one, but you have played a part in it, and the cumulative impact of
that is, well, incalculable. So let’s celebrate!

In solidarity,

The *Science & Society* Editorial Board
