From New International, Vol. I No. 3, September–October 1934, p. 94.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.
AS OUR readers will observe, the present issue of The New International is a combined September–October number. We were reluctantly impelled to take this step because, despite our earlier hopes, it has proved technically impossible to make up for the time lost for various reasons in getting out the first two issues of the review. We were confronted with the alternative of appearing three or four weeks late with every issue – at least for the coming months – or of frankly acknowledging to ourselves the uncomfortable reality and “doubling up”. We chose the latter. This now makes it possible for us to realize our determination to come out regularly henceforward, and on time each month. The next number will therefore be dated November, and regularly thereafter. At the same time, our readers should bear in mind that we urgently need their generous assistance to assure our existence.
The combining of the September and October numbers of our review into one, compelled us to omit a number of articles from the current issue. They will, however, appear in forthcoming numbers. The November number, which will be devoted mainly to the anniversary of the Russian revolution, will also contain the first article on Passports to Utopia, an examination of new theories of money and credit, by John Marshall. In addition, we hope to print an article by Max Eastman, presenting his standpoint on Marxism and dialectics, together with a reply.
