Last few months I am seeing new books on LISP/Erlang/Haskell in bookshops by leading publishers.Has anybody worked in production level project(s) involving these languages? Most of the books claim the superiority(interms of productivity/simplicity) of these languages over Java/C#/Python.LISP is 50 years old where as Erlang/Haskell are more than 20 years old.What are reasons behind this 'coming back'? business reasons? any limitation of java/c#?

I agree. Here's the link:
