    Back in the day when Labour MPs would write to the Socialist Standard to engage in a debate about socialism and materialism:

    As if to celebrate, adding here it to our archives has skewed up the front page.

    I’ve sent out an SOS.

    Wow, it’s been awhile.

    Just a wee update about the blog. The following is a list of the completed Socialist Standards on the blog. Every Standard since September 1904 is featured in some shape or form on the blog but, gradually, I’m getting around to scanning in whole issues.

    If you want to check out any of the particular Standards listed, just scroll down the right hand side of the blog and it will be listed by its month and year.

    The completed Standards only go up to 1997 because, from 1998 to the present day, all the Standards were/are automatically added to the SPGB website:

    Forgive me dear forum moderator, it has been nearly 45 days since my last ‘info dump’. (Yep, I know that’s the wrong terminology.)

    Just a wee update about the blog. The following is a list of the newly completed Socialist Standards on the blog . . .  since the last post on the thread on a similar theme.

    Excuse me for a bit of cut and paste to explain the background to this:

    Every Standard since September 1904 is featured in some shape or form on the blog but, gradually, I’m getting around to scanning in whole issues.

    Thanks Darren for the update. Hardly an info dump. A valuable service provided and keeping missing articles and issues in a safe place for me to access for the website.

    I don’t usually links to individual articles/pieces these days but I liked Eric Boden’s take down of the ghastly Webbs and their notorious two volume book from this April 1936 issue of the Socialist Standard. Just scanned in for your perusal.

    I especially liked Boden’s final paragraph:

    “Contemporary conditions in Russia have given a curious twist to the ideas of Marx and Engels, just as conditions in Germany in the first half of the 19th century gave a similar twist to revolutionary ideas from France. The stability of the existing regime in Russia cannot be eternal, and it behoves workers to beware of accepting the assurances of “intellectuals,” like the Webbs, concerning Russia or Socialism. They are authorities on neither.”

    Sticking the boot into Fabians and the Soviet Union in one review. Nice!

    One of those Socialist Standard articles/reviews that you’re surprised wasn’t scanned in years ago.

    From the Socialist Standard archives, a 1970 review of Noam Chomsky’s ‘American Power and the New Mandarins’:
