Through the Looking Glass: Anarchist adventures at Marxism 2001

Review: I Couldn't Paint Golden Angels

There is a long tradition of personal autobiographies written by ageing activists in the anarchist movement about their experiences and motivations. This is the recently published autobiography of Albert Meltzer, a British anarchist whose life has taken him from the fights against Mosley and support for Spain in the 1930's through fringe involvement in a plot to assassinate Hitler, the Cairo mutiny after WWII, supporting the Spanish resistance, to the Angry Brigade trials and fighting the National Front in the 1970's.

Review: Imagine by Sheridan and McCombes

A review of Imagine by Tommy Sheridan and Alan McCombes, the (then) leaders of the Scotish Socialist Party. An attempt by Trotskyists to become libertarian sounding are not very convincing.

Reply to John Rees: In defence of the Truth - The Kronstadt Uprising against the Bolsheviks

One of the most detailed responses to the anarchists critique of Bolshevism was published in the winter issue of International Socialism the journal of the Socialist Workers Party (the largest Leninist group in England).
