What was the title of Fryer's book on the Hungarian Revolution?

It is more important to note Fryer's more recent book, STAYING
POWER, on the history of blacks in Britain, published by Pluto
Press.

I should also like to mention a little-known article by Fryer
about Lenin as philosopher published in the late 1950's.  It was a
polemic against E.P. Thompson, who had just broken with the CP
himself.  Thompson in a fit of anti-Stalinist remorse went on the
usual philosophical rampage against scientism including Lenin's
MATERIALISM AND EMPIRIO-CRITICISM.  This was not one of Thompson's
finer moments.  Fryer effectively opposed him in this article.
