Short but Sweet:

The Tragic Procession: Alexander Berkman and Russian Prisoner Aid [Review]

This is a beautiful document, showing real care and devotion to anarchist history. It is a well-produced facsimile of the bulletins of the anarchist aid organisations after the Russian revolution and Bolshevik repression, between 1923 and 1931. The indefatigable spirit of Alexander Berkman runs through the bulletins and we can see the efforts made by the relief committees in the statements of accounts at the back of each one.

It won’t win any converts, but a useful historical document.
