KSL: Bulletin of the Kate Sharpley Library No. 102, September 2020 has just been posted on our site. The PDF is up at: https://www.katesharpleylibrary.net/m640h1. You can get to the contents list at https://www.katesharpleylibrary.net/jdfpq3
Contents:
Stuart Christie portrait
The Kate Sharpley Library and Stuart: an appreciation "It would have been easy for Stuart to play the role of hero and champion. He rejected that and any other idea of him being a leader, which shows the measure of the man."
Stuart Christie 1946-2020 Anarchist activist, writer and publisher by John Patten “Without freedom there would be no equality and without equality no freedom, and without struggle there would be neither.”
KSL Update Sept. 2020
Worth a Second Look No. 2. Re-reading Kuwasi Balagoon’s ‘Anarchy Can’t Fight Alone’ by Devin Hoff "Re-reading it still makes me feel like everything is possible and the revolution is just around the corner."
Berta Tubisman by Sergei Ovsiannikov. "This woman in her fifties evidently refused to confess to anything. Otherwise she would have received a death sentence." - Anatoly Dubovik
Prisoner 155: Simón Radowitzky by Agustín Comotto [Book review] by Richard Warren "As you sit out your pandemic isolation, pondering on the glaring inefficiencies of the state, the potential of local mutual aid, and the shape of the future, you could do worse than take a bit of inspiration from this impressive tale of one man’s resistance, modesty and commitment to justice."
Barcelona 1936 by Hugo Dewar "They too were storming heaven – do you think they fought in vain"
Insulting the flag (1938) by André Prudhommeaux "every French person whose bond with the land of their birth is not made up exclusively of sordid jealousy and greed, is duty-bound to consider themselves a foreigner in their own country."

KSL: Bulletin of the Kate Sharpley Library No. 103, September 2021 has just been posted on our site. https://www.katesharpleylibrary.net/2281s4
Contents:
Remembering Stuart Christie, one year on. "It’s nearly a year since our friend and comrade Stuart Christie died. We’ve posted a handful of his writings to mark the anniversary."
Remembering Albert. "We have posted a couple of items which show different aspects of Albert’s life."
Anarchism in North East England 1882-1992 [review] "This is a big book, but don’t let that put you off, it’s a great piece of history from below."
Pietro Ferrua (1930-2021) by Marianne Enckell "This founding father of the CIRA died in Portland, Oregon, USA on 28 July 2021."
Rachel Hui-Chi Hsu. Emma Goldman, ‘Mother Earth’ and the Anarchist Awakening [Book review] by Barry Pateman "Through the work of Hsu we appreciate Goldman as a conscious anarchist and thinker who is part of a wider anarchist movement that is in constant reaction to the world around them."
Oppositions: some anarchist writings of Ida Mett [Book review] "Much of these writings contain sparks of hope at a time when darkness appeared to be suffocating anarchists and their ideas."
Insurrection: The Bloody Events of May 1937 in Barcelona [Book review] "Insurrection is a vital contribution to Spanish Civil War history. It’s also a critical examination of what revolutions do and what they need."
