Socialist Review wast the official magazine of the Socialist Party of America in the 1930s and 1940s. Starting out as American Socialist Quarterly the name changed to Socialist Review in September 1937. Even with the name “Quarterly” in it’s title, the magazine was monthly starting from Volume 5, No. 1 in March of 1936. The journal reflected the dominent “Militant” tendency that was composed of of the ‘center’ leadership of the SPA whose main leader was Norman Thomas, though he was not formally part of this caucus in the Party. There was both a growing left wing lead by the American supporters of the movement for the Fourth International lead by former CPUSA member James P. Cannon and grouped around the weekly periodical Socialist Appeal. There was also the right-wing tendency associated with the magazine New Leader inside the SPA. We have only narrow listing of years for the magazine below, 1934 through most of 1937.
