You can still get

and ANARCHY 26

If you found this Housing number of ANARCHY interesting you may like to know that you can still get ANARCHY 23, on Housing and Helplessnes, which contained the story of the Squatters’ Movement of 1946, putting it into perspective among other historic examples of direct action for housing, as well as the experiences of a man who built his own house, Ian Nairn’s exposition of the do-it-yourself philosophy, an account of the possibilities and pitfalls of housing societies, Douglas Stuckey’s report on miners who run their own pit, a housing tour of Bethnal Green, Jack Robinson’s observations on writing on walls and Arthur Uloth’s reflections on John Rae and the Myths of War.

You would probably be interested too, in Brian Richardson’s article “What has it got to do with the bomb?” in ANARCHY 26, which discussed the relationship between housing struggles and the campaign against the bomb. This issue also contained Tom McAlpine’s explanation of the ideas behind the Factory for Peace, (which has since started production), Ian Sainsbury’s sardonic exposures of the mechanics and finances of salesmanship “How to sell your way to Slavery” and Richard Drinnon’s really remarkable study of “Thoreau’s Politics of the Upright Man”.
