Coming this October: Black Flag 232

After an influx of interest from writers (if not, alas, from people who's first love is phoning up shops to get us stocked, chasing payments and generally getting down to the nitty gritty of admin and distro) it looks like we're filling up our pages nicely. Among some of our prospective articles are:

- A US citizen in London tells of her constant battle and the high price of staying in Britain against ongoing state hostility

- Ed Goddard of taking on the thorny question of why trade unionism is failing working people in a time of crisis.

- A genuinely alternative take on Somali piracy from a journalist who has been there and seen first-hand the realities on the ground.

- Brian Morris analysing the politics of historic anarchist-communist figure Peter Kropotkin.

- Iain McKay's in-depth study of founding father of the movement Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

Plus reviews of Farquhar Mcharg's Pistoleros! books, Dave Douglass's autobiographical trilogy, Anarcho-Syndicalism in the 20th Century and our unique Hob's choice pamphlet review column.

The magazine officially launches at the London Anarchist Bookfair on October 23rd, don't miss out!
