Frosty began writing for the world’s only English-language socialist daily paper in 2012, soon covering those figures ignored – or more often censored - by most political history. Stars from the arts like Marilyn Monroe, Sue Townsend and Lauren Bacall sit proudly alongside suffragette heroes and the overlooked women who helped Britain win the war against fascism or played a crucial role in the Easter Rising a century ago.

This book sets the Ukraine crisis in its global and local context, and draws the lessons needed for the anti-war movement as great power conflict returns to Europe and threatens a new cold war or worse. From his decade long vantage point in the leadership of the anti-war movement in the world s second most powerful imperialist military state Andrew Murray explores the essential links between the crises of contemporary capitalism and war. No political question is more important in contemporary Britain. It lies at the heart of controversies in public life and in the Labour movement and it is in this context that Andrew Murray s sharp polemics with those, on both right and left who seek to justify intervention have a particular relevance.
