Due to a mix up with typesetting, the official launch has been postponed by a month. So, last weekend in September should see the launch of volume 1 in Glasgow. Hopefully. Almost certainly, in fact.

Still revising section H, with added bits and pieces on the critique of Engels terrible "On Authority". I doubt it will be ready for the planned release date of the 19th of July, but it should be done before the launch of volume 1. In a way, given how terrible Marxism has proven to be in practice it seems amazing that this critique needs to be done. Particularly as the failings of Marxism have confirmed anarchist predictions and criticism. But obviously minor things like degenerating into reformism and creating state capitalist dictatorships make little impact when it comes to the believers in ideology. Or, for that matter, the awkward fact that anarchists were right...

I'm also nearly finished the final draft of the Mutual Aid introduction. I'll need to do a much shorter version as well, which should be easy (and informed) thanks to all the research I've done for this essay. I should be posting the final version in a few weeks.

I'll also start transferring some of my longer articles from my old webpage on I've done my review of the Maurice Brinton anthology. Does anyone have any suggestions on what should be next? Any favourites? Or anything I should not bother creating here?

 Like most sites we have a major problem with bots trying to post spam into the comments section.  While looking for a better solution we are reduced to only on turning on the ability to anonymously comment for brief periods around the posting of new articles.  But if you are a regular visitor you can comment at any time by creating an account on the site and logging in before posting. But the Spammers also set up accounts so to reduce the workload of deleting those we only turn on the ability to create accounts for brief periods which we announce on our Twitter & Facebook accounts so follow those to hear when we have that turned on.  We do want you to be able to engage with us via the comments and we are very sorry for the fact that we can't find a better way of dealing with spam.
