Another ten issues of Socialist Challenge added, covering the period of the launch of the ANL and much else besides.
The 24 page Xmas special for 1977 is well worth reading- I recommend the letters page.
Also a couple of pamphlets on CND / anti-nuclear struggles and six more Irish papers:
Meanwhile, I have been busy scanning Internal Bulletins by the truckload…
These two pamphlets have just been added to the site:
Nuclear Disarmament and the Labour Party by Tony Southall (Scottish Labour CND, 1983)
CND 1958-65: lessons of the first wave by Tony Southall and Julian Atkinson (Socialist Challenge pamphlet)
In 1977 Mary Whitehouse launched a malicious prosecution against Gay News for publishing a poem which she considered blasphemous.
In solidarity, Socialist Challenge intended to publish the offending poem on its back page.
Thanks to Keith for helping to plug a couple of gaps in our Socialist Challenge collection- no 2 and no 6 are now uploaded.
We have also scanned up to issue 21 for November 1977 a period covering the FBU strike, splits in the Communist Party and the murder of Steven Biko.
And we have just added six new items (thanks to Steve G) to the pamphlets section.
Plenty to come next week including more Socialist Challenges and copies of the Irish papers Socialist Democracy and The Plough.
As is traditional at this time of year, we would like to offer loyal readers a calendar.

We have eight issues of LFEE in our archives.
The fourth Communism vs Stalinism pamphlet looked at the place of women in the Soviet Union. It was written by Tamara Volkova with a preface by Branka Magas.
The pamphlet was also one of the subjects of a major review article, entitled Red Heroines, by Tariq Ali in the Guardian Women’s section- 27th February 1976.
Of further interest may be the following journals:
and these two magazines / newsletters of the Women in Eastern Europe group which was largely composed of IMG women.
