Walter was an articulate, uncompromising anarchist. He wrote widely on anarchist theory and history; and he was a leading activist in the Committee of 100, notably in the ‘Spies for Peace’. He was also a theorist of non-violent direct action and wrote a number of influential articles and pamphlets. He was a trenchant critic and reviewer, a formidable polemical debater, and vehement in his rejection of the theory and practice of Marxism in general and Soviet communism in particular. He became also a prolific writer of letters to the serious press and to intellectual journals. He became Director of the Rationalist Press Association, and an effective propagandist for secular humanism. Walter articulated a reasoned, libertarian perspective on English radicalism.
