This introductory chapter discusses the radical political activity and print culture that arose in Britain in the late nineteenth century. It defines the term slow print as print that actively opposed literary and journalistic mass production; it was often explicitly political in objective, as socialist, anarchist, and other radical groups came to believe that large-scale mass-oriented print was no way to bring about revolutionary social changes. By focusing on the literary culture of the radical press, the book suggests that literature was a crucial means by which the turn-of-the-century radical counterpublic defined itself against capitalist mass print culture. An overview of the subsequent chapter is also presented.
