He experienced such encroachments very directly. The Defence of the Realm Act (dora) was the legal instrument through which most official reprisals were visited on him—punitive meas­ures arising from his dogged support for conscientious objectors and a negotiated peace. Under this emergency legislation he was twice convicted and had his freedom of movement curbed. This harsh treatment is well known, but the literature on Russell has not yet systematically examined his relationship with this “other DORA”. Using the Russell Archives, his <em>Collected Papers</em>, and government records in the UK’s National Archives, this paper seeks to establish the legal, administrative and political contexts in which he was prosecuted and sanctioned extra-judicially, and where he sometimes benefitted from DORA’s formidable powers being set aside.</p> Andrew G.

Moore's Unpublished Review of <em>The Principles of Mathematics</em> https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/russelljournal/article/view/3845 <p>Several interesting themes emerge from G. E. Moore’s previously unpub­lished review of <em>The Principles of Mathematics</em>. These include a worry concerning whether mathematical notions are identical to purely logical ones, even if coextensive logical ones exist. Another involves a conception of infinity based on endless series neglected in the <em>Principles</em> but arguably involved in Zeno’s paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise. Moore also questions the scope of Russell’s notion of material implication, and other aspects of Russell’s claim that mathematics reduces to logic.</p> Kevin C.

The origin and development of the plan that led to the continuing publication of volumes in&nbsp;<em>The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell</em>&nbsp;is sketched, and the author’s role in giving Ronald W. Clark access to the Archives to write the first major biography of Russell is disclosed.</p> John G.

The highlights were being hired for the Russell Archives at McMaster and adoption of the correspondence catalogue by the University Library from its maintenance and development as a post-retirement project.</p> Kenneth Blackwell ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/russelljournal/article/view/3848 Sun, 27 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0500 Russell's Life, Legacy and Work [review of Peter Stone, ed., <em>Bertrand Russell's Life and Legacy</em>] https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/russelljournal/article/view/3850 Stefan Andersson ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/russelljournal/article/view/3850 Sun, 27 Jan 2019 15:34:46 -0500 Whitehead's Harvard Lectures [Paul A.
