• UNDERCURRENTS, the magazine of radical science and alternative technology [ISSN0306 2392], was published from London, England, from 1973 to 1984 [No. 60]. This text version has been created in 2006-8 by me, Chris [Hutton-]Squire [a member of the now-dissolved Undercurrents Collective], by OCRing scanned images of a print copy; the texthas been spell-checked but it has NOT been checked against the original.
Health & Safety Warning:
The practical, technical and scientific information herein[though believed to be accurate at the time of publication] may now be out of date.
CAVEAT LECTOR! 
The many stories that Undercurrents told will interest students of a period that is both toodistant and too recent to be adequately documented on the Web. The moral, philosophical,social, economic and political opinions herein remain, in my opinion, pertinent to themuch more severe problems we now face.Readers who wish correspond on any matters arising are invited to contact me via:
chris[at]cjsquire.plus.com
This pdf version is formatted in 15 pt Optima throughout, so as to be easily readable onscreen; it runs to 133 pages [the print versions were 48 - 56 pp.]: readers wishing to print itout to read are recommended to use the text version and to reformat it. The many picturesthat embellished the print version are sadly not included here. There no restrictions on theuse of this material but please credit individual authors where credit is due: they are mostlystill with us.Page numbers below are for this pdf version.

''Wot's this ?"
,you may well be thinking. "Advertising? InUndercurrents?" You may well feel we owe you an explanation. Here it is.Until recently, we've rejected display advertising because we felt thatanything worth saying to our readers could be said in a small ad. We alsofelt we didn't want to give a platform in our magazine to organisationswe either disapproved of or were indifferent to, just because they couldpay for space. And we didn't want to become dependent on advertisingrevenue to the extent that it might affect our ability to publish if it werewithdrawn. What's more, we didn't want to run the risk of being accused(however unfairly) of tailoring our editorial policy to suit our advertisingmarket.What we hadn't envisaged was a situation where we might want to givemore than small-ad space to announcements of products or serviceswhich the majority of our readers would be keenly interested in. But this,with the emergence of dozens of "AT" products on the market over thepast year, is exactly what's happened. If our readers, and our potentialreaders, can't read about such products and services inUNDERCURRENTS, then they will find another magazine which givesthem the information they want without setting it in the radical social andpolitical context which, we believe, is vital if "alternative technology" isever to help build a better society. Of course, we still won't allowadvertisers to take up valuable space in the magazine unless we feel theyhave something interesting to say, and we'll refuse to accept any adswhich we feel are misleading, or are a waste of space. As a deterrent,we'll be charging more per column inch as space increases, notless' ( most magazines do the opposite). And we've set an upper limit of one page per ad.Moreover, we're moving on to the offensive in tackling the proliferationof A T hardware by starting a Product Reviews section. In each issue,we'll analyse a particular product in detail, pointing out its disadvantages,its advantages, and the value for money it represents. We also hope toprobe the methods and motives of the companies producing thesevarious devices. In each issue there will also be a directory section givingnames and addresses of manufacturers, and eventually, a brief "potted"review of their products. And for those who prefer to roll their owninstead of buying off-the-shelf devices, we'll have a regular DIY Projectsection. To avoid becoming dependent on ad. revenue, we will set thecover price so that it pays completely for at least 48 pages of editorial
