Dear xmca'ers,
I wanted to let you know that we, too, had a book in the same series
where Yrjö's two new recent ones came out.

The outstanding feature is that all chapters push the dialectical
aspect of CHAT, defining dialectical concepts (with inner
contradictions) that generate constant movement and development. I am
pasting the table of contents and book cover.
