Education for Socialists Bulletins

These bulletins served to educate the members of the Socialist Workers Party of the US and the interested public in the US around a varitey of issue concerning the program of Revolutionary Marxism. There were published around a variety of topics from the United Front to fighting Fascism to the importance of Leninist party building. The National Education Department of the S.W.P. began publishing them in 1970. All were in the public domain, except where the contents themselves were previously copyrighted, the SWP nor their publishing department failed to copyright these journals until the end of 1978 when they started to appear with a copyright notice. We are only digitizing those in the Public Domain. Those marked with a © symbol will be listed below but not digitized. Original copies provided by the Holt Labor Library with help from the Riazanov Library Project. NOTE: All RTF (Word formatted) files are raw, they have not been edited for spelling.
