Warwick University Ltd

Warwick University Ltd by E.P. Thompson

You University people should read this book, if you haven't already. It's in yer uni library (or was when I was there). I wrote an article about it in the boar, it's good for helpin try and radicalise them students.

(If you're gonna buy it go through the link in the libcom 'shop' onto amazon before you do, then they get some money).

The following book is worth a look about the beginnings of 'insert university of choice' Ltd.

Thatcherism goes to College.

The book was apparently withdrawn by the publishers as a result of litigation:

although last time I looked you could get it as remaindered stock in Freedom for a quid (or two) NB with erratum on the point in question.
