60 Years of World Mending


    Published for the first time to commemorate the 100th anniversary of The Deveron Press.‘It is natural that old men should make comparisons between past and present generations; they are the only people who can do so with first-hand knowledge of both. The specific statements they make must stand or fall on their validity. I must leave it more or less at that.’A unique and individualistic view of the world over more than sixty years, Leatham’s retrospective (and incomplete autobiography) offers a view of a world that has long gone, while reminding us that many of the same issues remain. As an introduction to the birth pangs of Socialism it is enlightening. As a reflection on a life lived according to principle it is inspirational. A must read for anyone interested in where we have come from – and where we might have gone had different paths been taken, his opinion still resonates with the profound challenge to personal action: ‘If you want to escape being badly governed, from your point of view, you must take a hand in the business yourself.’
