A generation ago we wrote Beyond the Fragments. Inspired by the activism of the 1970s, and facing the imminent triumph of the right under Margaret Thatcher, we sought to apply our experiences as feminists to creating stronger bonds of solidarity in a new kind of movement. Since then the obstacles facing us have grown formidably; deepening recession, environmental pollution, falling real wages and savage welfare cuts. New forms of resistance have appeared, but how are they to coalesce? In our three new essays to this new edition we return to the fraught question of how to consolidate diverse upsurges of rebellion into effective, open democratic left coalitions.

Sheila Rowbotham is a professor in the School of Social Science at the University of Manchester. Her latest book is on Edward Carpenter.

Lynne Segal is professor of Psychology and Gender Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London. Her latest book is Making Trouble; Life and Politics.

Hilary Wainwright is an editor of Red Pepper magazine. She has appeared on BBC Question Time and is a Research Director of the New Politics Project of the Transnational Institute, Amsterdam.
