All Against All: The Long Winter of 1933 and the Origins of the Second World War, Paul Jankowski Profile £20
I don’t want to give this work a bad review, because I suspect it just isn’t written for me. But All Against All is an unrelenting tsunami of facts which totally overwhelmed me. At no point could I pick out an underlying narrative or ideological point. According to the dust jacket, the book tells the story of the global political scene from November 1932 to April 1933 when a number of currents combined to tip the world into a grim spiral that led to the Second World War.

I enjoyed Keith Flett’s article “Real Ale, Craft Beer and Anti-capitalism” in the May issue of Socialist Review. The emergence of craft beer is to be welcomed and encouraged. But even the best craft beer can’t match a great pint from the wood. The infrastructure needed for great ale is complex and expensive. Well, it’s a pub! We must focus primarily on protecting and promoting real ale above all. Even the greatest victory can be reversed in time, especially when big business wakes up and sniffs money. We must stay vigilant and protect the gains we’ve fought so hard for.
