I was reading Van der Linden's book on Soviet Union and Western Marxism. I came across with the name Fritz Sternberg for whom - Linden argued - soviet union was a sui generis mode of production, with a tendency towards red imperialism.
Anyway I knew that there was a lot of reference given to Sternberg in ICC analysis especially in the articles about decadence and war. I started to read his works now. I begin with capiltaism and socialism on trial.
I have a question which may sound a bit naive or imatient on my part but I will be happy if someone can give me some info before I finish the book. So:
1- What the ICC thinks about this person politicaly?
2- More important; to what degree he influenced ICC's decadance theory?
PS: It is also interesting that such a productive and -seemingly popular- author in 50's-60's does not even have a wikipedia entry now.
