DescriptionCuttings of each of the Guardian's leading articles with manuscript annotations of the author's initials, 20 January 1993 - 12 June 1993. Leading articles were published anonymously each day as the collective view of the newspaper. Researchers should note that leaders do not necessarily express the personal views of their writers.

The following leading articles have no author identified:
