Transcribers Note: The Communist was the primary monthly theoretical journal of the Communist Party that began publishing in 1927. Last published in Dec 1944. Creation of this digital archive by The Riazanov Library Project

Predecessors and Successors:

In the late teens and early 20s of the 20th century, the just-initiated communist movement in the USa published, or acquired and continued publishing, The Liberator 1918-1924, Labor Herald 1922-1924, and Soviet Russia Pictorial 1923-1924. [Note that Soviet Russia Pictorial was a continuation of Soviet Russia, and The Liberator was a kind of re-incarnation of The Masses, 1911-1917.]

In November of 1924, The Liberator, Soviet Russia Pictorial, and Labor Herald were terminated and folded together into "Workers Monthly", which began in November of 1924.

Workers Monthly (which had some of the look and feel of the Liberator, with at times lovely color art on the cover and striking one and two page political cartoons inside augmenting the text) ended in February of 1927, and became in March of 1927 "The Communist".

The change in format was dramatic: Where its immediate and secondary predecessors were 8 1/2 x 11 inch magazine format with lovely color (or dramatic black and white photo) covers, The Communist was a 6 x 8 inch pamphlet / book format publication, whose covers bore some art in the early years, but soon after ceased to do so, and which had occasional photos and sketches in its earliest issues, which mostly ceased to adorn the majority of its published issues after a few years. One might argue this change mirrored the change in the character of the Comintern-led Communist Movement in the USA and world-wide, as that became at least finally solidly under Stalin’s control.

In 1943 the Communist International was dissolved, an action taken by the Soviet Union as part of the downplaying of the term ’communist’ by Moscow, as it sought a continuation of the war-time alliance with the United States at the close of WWII. in January of 1945, the name of "The Communist" was changed to Political Affairs. Political Affairs ceased publication on physical paper at the end of 2008, but continues to be published online to this day (2014).
