I have designed a set of autocollants (political stickers, widely used in other countries but not until now in Britain: see here) which will be ready to be sent out with Solidarity on 10 December or by post.

There are seven designs, similar to that of the posters, and will be available for branches to buy for £8 for 40, with a discount for larger orders.

In an era of wars and revolutions: American socialist cartoons of the mid-twentieth century

The cartoons collected here depict US politics, workers’ struggles, America’s “Jim Crow” racism, Roosevelt’s “New Deal” and Harry Truman’s “Fair Deal”, and Stalinism at its height, as revolutionary socialists saw them at the time.






A few bold strokes by an artist can convey an idea more vividly and fix it more firmly in the viewer’s mind than an editorial or an article would.

Marxist Theory and History: 

The 7 periods in the formation of the SWP (WL 3/38)

Myths and truths about the history and basic ideas of the SWP and its forerunners.

This pamphlet covers the pre-history of the SWP in the Socialist Review and IS groups of the 1950s and 1960s, and the period between 1968 and the late 1970s in which the essentials of today's SWP were formed. Written by one of the very few members of the IS National Committee of 1968-71 still active, it dispels myths and identifies some of the deep-set roots of the SWP's current troubles.
