A cop consultant? A reading list.

It won't have escaped people's notice that there is a fierce debate around the research work of a member of Aufheben. That debate can be found here, and as you will see from the title it was initially about the behaviour of libcom admin but has since ranged far and wide.

Libcom admin have quite rightly suggested that people read the documents themselves and form their own opinion. I have made my views clear elsewhere, but I have restrained from commenting here, with the hope that people will take the opportunity to read through the documents themselves and develop an informed opinion rather than just cheerlead on such a serious topic.

I think it would be helpful to everyone if comments on this thread were confined to ensuring the reading list is accurate and complete - accusations about who did or didn't write what, when and why, redaction, abuses of privilege, etc are all covered in the documents listed, and a blow-by-blow account is given on the other thread, which is rumbling on as I type.

All these links have already been shown elsewhere, I have just pulled them all together. I have offered a short description where the title of the article doesn't speak for itself.

Items in italics have been requested to be added after this was originally posted

The accusations and counter accusations:

TPTG open letter
