A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1988-03:
The nature of the radical, underground, and illegal movements of the European left inhibits the survival of many historical records. Nevertheless, Cook and Pugh have compiled a guide to the personal papers of notable European anarchists, socialists, communists, radicals, and trade union activists found in museums, archives, and libraries throughout Western Europe and the US. Each of the more than 1,000 entries contains a brief biographical sketch. The authors acknowledge some self-imposed limitations. The guide ranges from the revolutions of 1848 to the end of WW II, contains no papers of British or Irish leftists, and mentions Eastern Europeans only if their papers have been deposited in Western Europe or the US. Perhaps because the compilation has been developed under the auspices of the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam, the guide seems especially rich in citations to Dutch archival resources. Recommended for graduate collections only.-D.J. Cohen, College of Charleston
