A Note on SWP Internal Discussion Bulletins

This set of bulletins from the internal discussions of the U.S. Trotskyist movement represents the continuity of the pervious bulletins put out by the U.S. supporters of the Trotskyist Left Opposition. Previous incarnations of these bulletins going back to 1930 are listed the bottom of this page or, you can go to the Internal Documents Library of the Socialist Workers Party [US].

The nomenclature, volume and numbering of these bulletins is not consistent. This set of Bulletins begins with volume 1 as it represents the first internal discussion of the newly formed SWP as the Trotskyists emerged from the Socialist Party in January of 1938 having been a faction inside it for almost 2 years. Published parallel to these bulletins was an International Bulletin series that tightened up the discussion leading up to the founding of the Fourth International restricting itself to international discussions. This English language bulletin was published for the Movement for the Fourth International and is published irregularly from 1938 onward. More on this below.

Regarding Volume numbering for SWP Internal Bulletins:

The relationship between volume numbering and year of publication is very odd for the first three volumes of the SWP Internal Bulletins starting in 1938.

Volume 1 covers 1938 and some 1939 issues.
Volume 2 covers 1939 and some 1940 issues.
Volume 3 covers some 1940 issues, of two types:
There's first a SINGLE ”Internal Bullein” (labelled as such explicitly), Vol 3 No 1.
THEN there are three more issues in Volume 3, all published in 1940.

But: (1) These are all called on their cover NOT “Internal Bulletin”, but instead “Pre Plenum Discussion Bulletin”.

(2) These Pre Plenum Discussion issues bear the volume and issue numbering:

Vol III No 1, Vol III No 2, and Vol III No 3. Note that there are two “Vol 3 No 1” issues, and a total of 4 issues! Note that the first of them has the volume number printed with the Arabic number “3”, and the next three have the volume number printed using the Roman Numeral “ III” .

There were NO Internal Bulletins printed in 1941.

Starting with Volume 4, 1942, volume numbering becomes ordinary, sane, and expected: One volume number per calendar year, with the numbering increasing sequentially: Vol 5 is 1943, Vol 6 is 1944, Vol 7 is 1945, and so on. But in 1950, the SWP began publishing, along with “Internal Bulletins”, “Discussion Bulletins” that basically had the same function as “Internal Bulletins. Publication of Internal Bulletins continued until the last of the Internal Bulletins published (a single one), Vol XVI (Vol 16) No 1 of 1954, after which the transition from “Internal Bulletins” to “Discussion Bulletins”, which began in 1950, becomes complete.

Beginning in 1950, another bulletin begins to be published called the Discussion Bulletin and later as SWP Discussion Bulletin. There is no apparent difference in content between the Internal Bulletins and the Discussion Bulletins. Both served as a means of communications between the SWP leadership and the membership, and form members raise political differences within the party prior to a Convention or during important events and occurrences in the class struggle.

While both IBs and DBs are published during the same periods, after 1954, only the SWP Discussions Bulletins were published.

While these Bulletins were published, along with the above mentioned International Bulletins various other internal bulletins were published for different purposes. The Party Builder began publishing in bulletin newsletter format in 1944 for several years until it stopped in 1947. It picked up again in the new period leading out of the McCarthy period in 1960 with one issue that year and another again in 1963. Skipping 7 years it resumed publication as The Party Organizer in 1970 and continued to publish a few issues a year from then on. The purpose of the Party Builder/Organizer was to inform members in the branches of the SWP around the country what the other branches were doing, notes from trade union fractions, organizational matters stemming from national Conventions and Plenums and publication and election campaign activities of the party.

Several more bulletins can be added to this list. Starting in 1964 one of these was the Internal Information Bulletin (IIB). The IIB was a bulletin that served not for internal debate prior to a Convention of the party, but as a means for the leadership to circulate important documents of all sorts to the membership only for informational purposes. Often times Plenum discussions and decisions were distributed this way. The SWP was in the midst of an important internal crisis in 1964 which provided the impetus for the leadership to start this publication.

The last of the publications involves discussions and documents of the Fourth International. In this note above, it is pointed out that there exists an International Bulletin. This bulletin changes its name to International Information Bulletin in1941 and stops in 1944. It picks up again in 1951 during the beginning of a major crisis in the Fourth International. Stopping in 1954 it picks up again in 1961 and runs until 1972. Publications resumes in 1977 but with another name change to International Internal Information Bulletin or IIIB. The publication of this Bulletin ends when the SWP abandons the Fourth International.

The IB served as an informal line of communication between the leadership of the FI in WWII located in New York City, the members of the FI in other countries and the membership of the SWP. Since it was always wholly published by the SWP it was never an official publication of the FI itself. Later on it served as a document dispensing tool for the SWP lead wing of the Fourth International providing documentation for arguments being put forward by the leadership of the SWP to support it's positions internationally but also served to document the positions of other leaders and currents in the Fourth International that were not necessarily appropriate for a World Congress discussion.

Lastly, from 1972 to 1983, as a courtesy to the Fourth International, the SWP published the International Internal Discussion Bulletin, or IIDB. This served the purpose for debating the vast number of discussions tearing at the Fourth International. Documents could be submitted by individuals, tendencies and sections in the Fourth International if they were approved for publication by any national section.

This monumental contribution to the history of the Trotskyist movement is made possible by the tireless effort of Marty Goodman of the Riazanov Library Project, the Holt Labor Library and the Encyclopedia of Trotskyism On-Line
