Die Neue Zeit

A magazine – the theoretical organ of German Social-Democratic Workers' Party, published in Stuttgart from 1883 to 1923.

The journal was edited by K. Kautsky from its creation until October 1917, and then by H. Cunow. Some of the writings of the founders of Marxism were first published in this journal, among them K. Marx's Critique of the Gotha Programme and Engels's "Criticism of the Draft Social-Democratic Programme of 1891". Other prominent leaders of the German and international labour movement who contributed to the journal at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries were A. Bebel, K. Kautsky, W. Liebknecht, R. Luxemburg, F. Mehring, Clara Zetkin, G. V. Plekhanov and P. Lafargue.

Beginning with the late nineties, the journal raised controversy by publishing articles by revisionists, including a series of articles by E. Bernstein "Problems of Socialism". During World War I the journal took a centrist stand.
