Fourth World Review: a Transition Journal
John Papworth’s journal Fourth World Review (4WR) has recently undergone a shift in emphasis, and finds itself under new management and dedicating its focus to Transition. It has become, in effect, the Transition Journal, offering weightier articles than you might find, for example, here at Transition Culture (ie. no articles about UFOs or handbags), creating a very welcome addition to the world of Transition-related publishing. 4WR is under the very capable editorship of Jon Hughes. The most recent edition contains excellent articles, by luminaries such as Kirkpatrick Sale, Peter North and others. It is essential reading, and will be published every 2 months.
4WR is available at a considerable discount for local Transition initiatives. This offers the opportunity both to keep people up to speed with latest thinking, as well as for your group to make some money selling it at events. For a minimum six editions a year, you can order five copies of each edition for £30 per year, or 10 copies for £50. You can contact Jon at hughes.jon (at) btinternet.com for more information. Also, if you have ideas for articles or contents do let him know. Jon is offering a free ‘taster’ copy of the latest edition to anyone who contacts him, so do get in touch, you can’t say any fairer than that.
Fourth World Review have created an excellent resource here, its long term success will depend on our support, so take it to your heart and make it your own! Like many such publications, people taking out subscriptions is vital to their long term thriving, so you could do a lot worse than to subscribe to 4WR, the 2 editions I have seen so far were thought-provoking and fascinating, and I was still carrying it around days later dipping into it, which is always a good sign.
