Welcome to Spokesman Books, the publishing imprint of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation

Europe in Question: and what to do about it
By Stuart Holland

"Stuart Holland on Europe is akin to Thomas Paine on the French Revolution combined with John Maynard Keynes on the Economic Consequences of the Peace. At a preciously young age, he persuaded Charles De Gaulle to agree to Britain's second application to join the European Economic Community. As an advisor to Jacques Delors he designed solutions to Europe's current problems decades before they even surfaced. Now, with Europe in Question - and what to do about it he offers a new generation of readers unique insights on how Europe can be fixed - as well as warnings that it may not be."
Yanis Varoufakis

Stuart Holland has published a number of books over the years. A full list of his titles with Spokesman Books can be found here.

This title is available to buy in ePUB format. A paperback edition is due to follow shortly.

A Pacifist at War
Letters and Writings 1914-1918
By Bertrand Russell
Edited by Nicholas Griffin

'The outbreak of the First World War dramatically changed almost everything in Bertrand Russell's life. The costs to him of opposing the War were high. The government fined him, confiscated his passport, placed him under surveillance, banned him from certain parts of the country, and eventually jailed him. None of this caused him to waver for a moment in his unrelenting opposition.'
- Nicholas Griffin

Russell was a tireless and engaging correspondent, and these letters, selected and fully annotated by Nicholas Griffin, give a vivid picture of his life and activities during those turbulent War years, including his complex personal life. A selection of Russell's key writings from the period develops the story.

Rough Violence
The Spokesman 125

Studied cruelty pervades the conflicts which consume our attention during summer 2014. In Iraq, in Ukraine, as well as in Palestine, the film reports are truly horrific. YouTube and Google’s visual testimony includes civilian victims of all ages. Image searches line up rows of decapitated heads in Iraq. The Islamic State is spreading its control across parts of Iraq and into Syria … In Ukraine, recently elected President Poroshenko, having initiated a ceasefire at one stage, has subsequently stepped up the bombardments of the eastern provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk … International law is not working, most obviously in Palestine. It is 10 years since the International Court of Justice, in an advisory judgment, declared Israel’s massive separation wall to be illegal.

Tony Benn Pamphlets

The Levellers and the English Democratic Tradition
by Tony Benn

The Levellers continue to inspire political debate and public interest. Thousands of people travel to Burford, attracted by their story with its ideas of democracy and common ownership. Tony Benn's and Frieder Otto Wolf's sparkling speeches to the annual Leveller's Day celebrations at Burford, separated by more than twenty years, give ample testimony to the strength of this tradition.


The Speaker, The Commons and Democracy
by Tony Benn

There is no doubt that unless we can restore the vitality of representative democracy more and more people will conclude that they are just pawns in an unending political game to be managed and manipulated for the convenience of those at the top.

See our full range of Tony Benn books and pamphlets.
