Contemporary "grass-roots" literature is a crucial source for those interested in charting the development of radical thinking and politics. However, until now, comparative research into this area has been hampered by a lack of adequate library resources, as this material is notoriously difficult to collect. British Contemporary Press represents a great advantage to researchers, in gathering together a wide selection of British-based journals and magazines in one single, convenient and time-saving format. The material includes a wide variety of topics, reflecting the full range of radical perspectives on social, political and environmental issues.
The publications included in this collection are drawn from and augment those featured in our Underground and Alternative Press and The Left in Britain collections.
