Peter Todorov was also a writer and publicist, author of famous book during the 30s - Routs of Bulgaria and many published articles and essays. In this book only a small part of his diaries are selected to be published for the first time.

Most of these articles are actually reports submitted to various international scientific conferences - in the Rila Monastery, Plovdiv, Veliko Tarnovo and Moscow during the 2000-2002 period or included In honorem books (to Vesselin Beshevliev, Nikolai Genchev, Stancho Vaklinov, Ivailo Znepolski). Some of them are already published, but I want to believe that gathered in a separate booklet will reach easier the students and all the history-goers of the medieval Bulgarian culture.

Sofia, 2000

The time when "fashion" was defined by French designers whose clothes could be afforded only by elite has ended. Now designers take their cues from mainstream consumers and creativity is channeled more into mass-marketing clothes than into designing them. Indeed, one need look no further than the Gap to see proof of this. In The End of Fashion, Wall Street Journal, reporter Teri Agins astutely explores this seminal change, laying bare all aspects of the fashion industry from manufacturing, retailing, anmd licensing to image making and financing. Here as well are fascinating insider vignettes that show Donna Karan fighting with financiers,the rivalry between Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, and the commitment to haute conture that sent Isaac Mizrahi's business spiraling.

A book I almost called
"Sociology of Lifeless Man"

Author: Andrei Raichev
Format: 60х90/16
Paperback
Pages: 200
1st edition
Bulgarian
Publisher: R&S
ISBN 954-90752-1-4
Sofia, 2000

The division of labour did not bring me anything and I withdrew in 1991. There is no moral in this except that I now lead a better and more meaningful life.
Hence I no longer feel I have any scientific duties: the division of labour in science hardly inspires me in any way.
Still, Deyan Deyanov insisted that I continue lecturing at Plovdiv University on a biweekly basis. I agreed in order to keep alive the spirit of the Marx Seminar - an association of young scholars from Sofia which evolved around Deyanov in the mid-70s. Deyanov, incidentally, is also the reason why I ventured to publish this book at all - but only on condition that he himself contributed some sort of afterword.
This book incorporates some of my lectures as transcribed by Mila Nikolova, with minor revisions made with the help of Liliana Deyanova and Nina Nikolova. I have edited out tedious digressions (part of which are included as endnotes), added footnotes and, in some places, inserted arbitrary subtitles.
I have also included one of my papers written at the time when I was still involved in the division of scientific labour.
5 August 2000 Andrei Raichev
