Socialist & Radical Periodicals provides access to the backfiles of a variety of serials reflecting the 20th/21st-century history of a variety of movements and ideologies on the political left; these titles include Marxist, socialist, communist, social democratic, and Fabianist publications. Among these publications are major titles from the US and the UK. The Monthly Review, launched in 1949, is the oldest still-published US socialist magazine and a key resource for examining over seven decades of the political and intellectual history of the American left. The archive encompasses the left's response to the economic and political challenges in the US after World War II, the McCarthy era, the emergence of the New Left movement, and contemporary issues and trends such as neoliberalism, globalization, and the implications of technology for the labor market. Marxism Today, published from 1957 to 1991, was launched as the magazine of the Communist Party of Great Britain. The archive captures the ways in which the magazine attempted initially to promote orthodox Marxist thought before proceeding to reappraise and modernize these theories in response to changing political and socioeconomic contexts (notably, Thatcherism during the 1980s).... Similarly, Fabian News / The Fabian Review, from its launch in 1891, has had a key role in the evolution of progressive thought and policy, advocating for democratic socialism, economic equality, and social reform for over 30 years. Its major contributors have included George Bernard Shaw, Beatrice Webb, Sidney Webb, and H.G. Wells. In combination the publications document the history of leftist politics / radicalism, labor, economics, and international relations during this period, as well as the related historical, political, and cultural events of their time. The collection will support research and teaching not only in these areas, but also in related fields such as philosophy, intellectual / cultural history, and women's and gender studies.
