The publication reviewed as "Against Democracy" in here seems like it must be an early version of the "Spies at Work" book. Also, it's very noticeable that at around this point they must have had someone who really liked puns working on the editorial group. Carrying a picture of a Brazilian footballer on the first page to trail an article about anarcho-syndicalist unions in Brazil is a fairly bold move as well.
