Leader: Evensmo today

It was not easy to stand for Sigurd Evensmo's "the third position" in 1952. Far less in 1968. And in 2012 – impossible?

(NB! On the 100th anniversary on 14 February, 16.30-19, Gyldendal and Ny Tid invite you to a seminar, film and debate about Sigurd Evensmo. Program and registration here.)
