Aufheben review "Fascism/Anti-Fascism" and ask does antifascism necessarily entail supporting one face of the state against another?
An investigation into anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, and its links with British intelligence services. Despite causing a lot of problems for fascists, Searchlight gathers intelligence on both the right and the left and amongst other things has launched smear campaigns against anarchists.

This translation of the first 10 sections of Dauvé's text '« Bilan » Contre-Révolution en Espagne' was first published by Black Cat Press in Edmonton Canada in 1982, without the author's knowledge, under a new title, 'Fascism/Antifascism'. Subsequently it was reprinted in the U.K. by Pirate Publications. For a more up-to-date reflection of Dauvé's views on the same themes, see his June 1998 text 'When Insurrections Die', which is a reworking of the original text on 'Bilan'.
