Small enough to fit in your pocket and beautifully illustrated with significant dates in radical history, Pluto Press's iconic Big Red Diary returns to celebrate 50 years of radical publishing! For years, Pluto Press produced annual diaries, collaborating with activists and campaigns including the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the anti-Apartheid Movement and the Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign. This new diary draws upon the same tradition, interspersing photos and illustrations, as well as dates and information gathered from socialist, anti-racist, green, feminist and labour histories, alongside a handy weekly planner. Published to coincide with Pluto's 50th birthday, the Big Red Diary returns alongside reissues of some of Pluto's classic books.
Pluto has never been short of imaginative, some say trendy, ideas for promoting socialism. Its Big Red Diaries...have filled every radical's back pocket since 1974. -- Guardian (July, 1981)
