Peace Diary Front Cover
The Housmans Peace Diary 2017
with World Peace Directory

Every year we publish the world-renowned Housmans Peace Diary - this is the 64th edition. It includes a World Peace Directory listing 1500 national and international peace, environment and human rights organisations from around the world.

This year's special feature looks at the ways that police, security services and corporations "go beyond the call of duty" (one might say), in terms of using infiltration, surveillance, and dirty tricks, to undermine progressive campaigns of many sorts. We look at interesting examples of such attacks over the generations, and at how activists have refused to be cowed.

The Housmans Peace Diary is a non-profit service to movements around the world working for peace, social justice and the environment.

It's in pocket format, with a week to a view, and gives notable dates and anniversaries as well as a weekly quotation. It includes calendars, a forward planner for 2018 and space for notes. 

The retail price of the Housmans Peace Diary is unchanged for the 2017 edition at £8.95. The post-inclusive charges for Diaries sent to you direct from Housmans Bookshop are shown below. You can pay by debit or credit card using the Paypal buttons, or you can send a cheque for the amount shown (in UK Pounds only) to Housmans. Please make cheques payable to Housmans Bookshop.

Despatch of the 2017 Peace Diary will take place from the beginning of October 2017.
