Gordon Carr Author- THE ANGRY BRIGADE A HISTORY OF BRITAIN’S FIRST URBAN GUERILLA GROUP

THE ANGRY BRIGADE  A HISTORY OF BRITAIN’S FIRST URBAN GUERILLA GROUP

by Gordon Carr

“Even after all this time Carr’s book remains the best introduction to the culture and movement that gave birth to the Angry Brigade.”- Barry Pateman, Emma Goldman Papers

Based on extensive research, this book remains the essential study of the Angry Brigade, a group of urban guerillas who, between 1970 and 1972, used guns and bombs on embassies of repressive regimes, police stations and army barracks, boutiques and factories, government departments, and the homes of cabinet ministers as well the attorney general and the commissioner of the metropolitan police.  An avalanche of police raids followed culminating in the “Stoke Newington 8” conspiracy trial- the longest criminal trial in Britain’s legal history- which is thoroughly discussed in this volume.  Updated with comprehensive chronology of the “Angry Decade” and new illustrations, this new edition also adds commentary by Stuart Christie and John Barker, two of the defendants, who discuss the political and social contest of the movement and its long-term significance.

Martha Wells Author- THE SERPENT SEA

THE SERPENT SEA

by Martha Wells

Mysterious Galaxy Book Review

The second volume of the Books of the Raksura (following last year’s THE CLOUD ROADS, my favorite epic fantasy of 2011) finds former solitary consort Moon and colony, led by sister queen Jade and Pearl, traveling in search of a new home for the Indigo Cloud court, after their previous home was destroyed in a confrontation with the Fell Colon.  Grandfather Stone leads them to their ancestral home, a mountain-tree that will nourish and protect them.  But in their absence, someone has vandalized the tree, removing its life-sustaining seed.  Moon and Jade join an urgent quest for the seed, or a viable replacement- one that will bring them in contact with more fantastic inhabitants of Wells’ world – even as Moon struggles to adjust to life with his own kind, and the etiquette associated with a consort.  Riveting reading!- MeH
