Alastair Hatchett

In Brief

(April 1977)

From International Socialism (1st series), No.97, April 1977, p.32.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’ Callaghan for the Encyclopaedia of Trotskyism On-Line (ETOL).

THE long awaited republication of Edward Thompson’s William Morris is out this month from Merlin Press at £3.90. Another welcome reissue is Richard Wright’s Native Son (Penguin £1.00), the story of Bigger Thomas, a young Black boy from the slums of Chicago, set in the 1930’s. Virago have just published Life as we have known it, edited by Margaret Llewelyn Davies at £1.25. This is a collection of essays by working-class women describing their lives and experiences, originally published in 1931.

Two new books from Pluto this month are Larissa Reisner, Hamburg at the Barricades (£4.80) and Rosa Levine-Meyer, Inside German Communism (£4.80). Both books focus on class struggle in Weimar Germany; watch out for a pre-publication offer.

Don’t end up regretting that you didn’t join the Bookmarx Club this quarter. Watch for the adverts and send off your money to 265 Seven Sisters Road, London N4. All books reviewed or mentioned in this issue are available at the same address.
