UNDERCURRENTS, the magazine of radical science and alternative technology [ISSN0306 2392], was published from London, England, from 1972 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technical and scientific information herein[though believed to be accurate at the time of publication] may now be out of date.
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:

Our Phase 3 Policy for Undercurrents
WHEN Undercurrents first started, back in January 1972, our aim was toproduce a quarterly magazine consisting of articles on radical scientificand technological subjects,printed, where possible, by the people writingthem and collated into the "common carrier" of a plastic bag. In May1972, we experimented with a cellophane bag, but found it wasn·t strongenough and anyway was non·reusable, so we went back tomuch·maligned polythene.
