This page has been created by 'Ianthe' for the 1998 web edition of Paedophilia – The Radical Case.

Contemporary and subsequent history of PIE and PAL:

Campaign Against Public Morals. Paedophilia and Public Morals. London. CAPM, 1980.

(Pamphlet. Reproduces news-cuttings about the PIE arrests, along with analysis of where PIE tactics went wrong, and details of the defence campaign run by anarchists – the only section of the Left which had the courage to mount one! The title refers to the antiquated 17th Century charge of "Conspiracy to corrupt public morals" used to prosecute PIE Executive Committee members)

Moody, R. Indecent Assault. London. Peace News, 1980.

(Account of the trial and police harassment of a PIE campaigner, who was later acquitted of false charges of 'indecent assault' – still available from the Prinz Eisenherz address in Berlin)

(Study of answers from a questionnaire answered by 77 PIE members in Britain in the late 1970s. Also includes case-studies. Very interesting, but although non-condemnatory it is not wholly positive, and is by psychologists. Available from the Prinz Eisenherz address in Berlin)
