Peter's first book was his translation of anarchist-turned-Bolshevik Victor Serge’s Memoirs of a Revolutionary (1963). This was followed by his translation of Serge’s Year One of the Russian Revolution (1972). Peter's last book published was PsychoPolitics (1982) – a critique of anti-psychiatry and of the ideas of its gurus such as Foucault and R.D.Laing. Peter spent much time and effort researching for a further Serge book – provisionally entitled ‘The Double Duty' or ‘On Revolutionary Humanism’. This was cut short by his death. Part of Peter's material, however, provided the basis for The Serge-Trotsky Papers (1994) edited by David Cotterill.

The latest editions of the below books should be able to be found on any on-line bookshop. PsychoPolitics is currently out of print.
