Anarchy 54 discussed the ideas of Martin Buber, Gustav Landauer and Erich Mühsam. Readers wrote about it: “Marvellous and much needed. A very welcome issue” (C.R., London); “You have brought forward a really valuable discussion” (R.W., Norfolk); “I enjoyed it very much. It all goes together very well” (N.W., London); “I have long had a suspicion that Landauer had much to say that we could make use of. I am awfully glad that you have brought him to life.” (D.W., New York).

Anarchy 51 was our Blues, R ’n’ B, Pop, Folk issue. Albert McCarthy, writing in Jazz Monthly, declared that it was “quite simply, the best introduction to the subject that is available.”

Anarchy 36: Arms of the Law, contained Donald Rooum’s account of his adventures with Detective-Sergeant Challenor. “Anyone,” commented The Guardian, “who can’t wait for the Director of Public Prosecution’s verdict on what went on is referred to Anarchy 36.” And Tom Driberg, in the Sunday Citizen, called it “the most vivid and detailed account by a victim that I have yet seen.”

These and any other back issues of Anarchy are available from Freedom Press, 17a Maxwell Road, London, S.W.6.
