A short article originally written in 1930 for the French press by the Chinese anarchist Li Pei-Kan (more commonly known as Ba Jin in the English-speaking countries) passionately recounting the right wing terrorist campaign against anarchists, communists, socialists and Koreans in Japan in the wake of the great earthquake of 1923 and the subsequent response of some anarchists who sought to avenge the murders of their comrades.
On February 20, 1928, the Japanese comrade Wada Kyutaro died in the Akita prison, in the coldest part of northern Japan. The news of his death was a hard blow for me. For a long time now I have been writing articles for the Chinese press about the events that led to Wada’s conviction and the martyrdom of Furuta Daijiro.

E. P. Thompson's ground-breaking article on the English food riots of the 1700 and 1800s.
See his book, Customs in common, for an interesting follow-up article.
Eighteenth-century Britain saw a profound distancing between the culture of the patricians and the plebs. E. P. Thompson explains why in this series of brilliant essays on the customs of the working people, which, he argues, emerged as a culture of resistance towards an innovative market economy.
He discusses 'wife sales' as a form of unofficial divorce, the 'rough music' or ritual mockery directed at transgressors, the ways a rebellious traditional culture fought back against the enclosure movement, 'free markets' in grain and the work-discipline of early industrial capitalism. The result is a vividly original book, a superb companion volume to E. P.
