A historian and researcher into deep politics who started the Spartacus Educational website

John Simkin is owner/founder of Spartacus Educational, a site packed with deep political information. Simkin is particularly interested in the role of intelligence agencies in undermining "democracy" in the Western world and the supporting of military dictatorships worldwide.


John failed his 11+ and after leaving school at 15 he worked in the print trade. He "became interested in politics in 1963 and I soon discovered that the British media was extremely hostile to left-wing ideas."[1] As soon as he completed his apprenticeship he left the industry and in 1966 he was employed by a major brewery to manage an off-licence. While working full-time he took his first degree at the Open University (1970-77). This was followed by a PGCE at Sussex University (1977-78). He began work as a teacher of history and sociology at Heathfield Comprehensive in September, 1978.[2]

Tressell Publications

Simkin also helped form a co-operative, Tressell Publications, in 1979, which published booklets of source-materials and simulated history 'games' for computers.[3]
