Brilliant! Even though we reviewed this book by my old departed comrade in issue 17 of the UK Subversion journal (on line here) I no longer have a copy so this is most welcome.
Worth mentioning also John's earlier limited edition book on 'The Origins of Socialist Thought in Japan' as a companion.

And considering the hard copy original is up for sale for a couple of hundred knicker then it's very welcome. By the way, the AF's/John Crump's Anarchist movement in Japan pamphlet is an abridgement of this.
