Abstract:The continuing crisis and militarism of the capitalist world order in the first decades of the twenty-first century recall in certain respects the lead-up to the Second World War. The relevance of the South African alternative press of the 1930s to the politics and culture life of our society post-1994 makes Corinne Sandwith's just and committed account in 'World of Letters' as much a revival as a retrieval of vigorous debate in what may be a public sphere threatened with shrinkage. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
