These memoirs cover a long life in socialist politics and the academic world, from his travels in France and Nazi Germany as the Second World War approached, through war service as an Anti-Aircraft Gunnery Sergeant Major and army life in India. Saville, with Edward Thompson, was involved in the crisis of the British Communist Party in 1956 following Khrushchev's speech to the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party, and the consequences of the Soviet invasion of Hungary. Working against United States' Cold War politics, he even found that an MI5 agent had been planted at his home in Hull. John Saville is former Professor of Economic History at the University of Hull and was, for many years, co-editor with Ralph Miliband of The Socialist Register.
