09/24/2004 Archived Entry: "The small conspirator"
A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I BLOGGED A GREAT DISCOVERY, the book Mad Dreams, Saving Graces. Mad Dreams details how Poles in the 1980s thwarted their Communist leadership via a de-centralized, non-violent, "do your own thing," resistance. The subtitle, "a nation in conspiracy," says it all.
In the book, author Michael T. Kaufman mentions a how-to booklet of the resistance called "The Small Conspirator." I sighed that it would sure be a great thing for fireflies to get ahold of that, it it still exists. Well, it does, apparently. Its title is also translated as "The Junior Conspirator." And blogispondent Ian has been hot on the trail of it.
No copy so far. But there's this encouraging news straight from the booklet's author. (Scroll to the last item on the page.) We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, Mad Dreams remains out of print but still available -- although Wolfesblog readers seem to be doing an outstanding job gobbling up the remaining copies. :-)
