Correspondence on cultural politics, avoiding military service, and role as a news reporter

CP/MONT/10. With an initial focus on the cultural politics surrounding broadcast and print media, this grouping also includes records from the Duke of Hamilton's libel action in response to one of Montagu's articles. As a Daily Worker correspondent in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, it was neccessary for Montagu to be aware of the regulations included in part within these items; he also maintained correspondence with his Editor, William Rust and kept notes relating to his submissions. Montagu's views on the neccessity of fighting the Nazis didn't always meet with approval in his political party; however, his allegiance to the Communist Party also prevented him from being able to fight against the Nazis. Records of Montagu's appeal against the cancellation of his call-up is included here.
