Pamphlet Files

Scope and Content

Series of files containing pamphlets collected by John Saville during the course of his academic career and political life. Pamphlets relate to a wide variety of subjects, usually politically left leaning, and subjects covered include: 1956 and the Hungary episode; trade unions; Soviet Union; Communist Party and Communism; Labour Party; Independent Labour Party; Council for Academic Freedom; Chartism; Fascism and Anti-Fascism; Socialism; Germany; Ireland; Greece; Peace Movement; prisons; religion; Vietnam; Communist writers; National Council for Civil Liberties; Union of Democratic Control. Files within this series have been arranged alphabetically by subject. Original pamphlet files were received from depositor having being arranged by subject, alongside a number of loose pamphlets. Therefore, these loose pamphlets have also been collated into artificial files by subject during cataloguing. This decision was taken to reflect the original intention of Saville as the curator of this material. Where a file is an artificially created file, this is noted at item level.
