Re: [xmca] A small request: English version of '"Socio-Cultural-Historical Activity Theories of Development in the Age of Hyperglobalization" article in Russian

Hi Mike and Andy,

Thank you very much, Mike, for sharing your unpublished paper in
English. I will read it with great interest. And thank you, Andy, for
your suggested book.

By the way, I have requested your book on An Interdisciplinary Theory
of Activity, and am very glad to hear you had a very fruitful trip to
South Africa.

Best regards,
