LSHG Newsletter # 44 online

Just a quick message to highlight the fact that most of the new Spring LSHG newsletter is now online - contents include Keith Flett on Occupy, David Renton on Seb Coe, Stan Newens on Ray Challinor, and advertisements for forthcoming seminars of LSHG and others such as the Socialist History Society plus of course the annual LSHG conference on 25 February on 'A History of Riots'. Other matters were also flagged up, and John Riddell's report of the session on international Communism at November's Historical Materialism conference in London was reprinted. Future LSHG seminars are listed below, while for more info on submissions for future newsletters or membership of the LSHG contact Keith Flett at the email address above.
