4 May 2017: Added to the USA Publications page the complete digital scan of New Masses for 1934. This is the political-literary magazine of the Communist Party, USA. 1934 is an interesting 'cusp year' as it marks the beginning of the end of the Third Period which were marked by calls for insurrection and the building of red unions under Party control to the era of the Popular Front and the Communist Party's acquiescence to F.D.R. and the Democrats. Additionally this year starts the move away from an emphasis on art and literature to an almost strictly political magazine. We now have completed uploading all the issues of New Masses from 1926 through 1934.
