1968 and all that


Rudi Dutschke's The Students and the Revolution (£2) and Andrée Hoyles' Imagination in Power -- The Occupation of Factories in France in 1968 (£6) are two early Spokesman titles which still figure in our back catalogue. We have just a few copies left of each. These will be available from our stall on Saturday, together with more recent titles, at 1968 AND ALL THAT, the book fair and happening at London's Conway Hall in Red Lion Square (nearest tube Holborn). The doors open at 10am and admission is free.

40 years on from the 'événements' in Paris during that eventful May, there is a rich progamme of events and speakers thoughout the day. They include:

Peter Gowan on the Prague Spring (in the Bertrand Russell Room at 3pm)

Maggie Torres on Anarchism in Spain at 7pm


Albert Beale on Militant Pacifism also at 7pm

Istvan Meszaros on the Credit Crunch and the New Capitalist Crisis at 8pm

More than 50 publishers and booksellers will attend the Book Fair.

A Guy Debord real ale bar will serve beers from the Milton Brewery in Cambridge.


The programme continues until 10pm.
