Scope and Content Note

This collection contains two series and consists of either serial or informational pamphlets published by socialist and communist organizations in both the United States and internationally. Many of the pamphlets attempt to recruit new membership while making new audiences aware of an organization’s goals. Groups also targeted different audiences, including youth members as well as working-class members, amongst others.

The first series consists of six sub-series of serial publications published by particular socialist or communist organizations, most of which were based in the United States. These subseries include information from Fourth International, also sometimes known as the Fourth Internationalist Tendency, as well as the Revolutionary Marxist Committee, Socialist Action, Socialist Workers Party, Young Socialist Alliance, and other various organizations. The bulk of the materials were published between 1960-1980.

The second series contains non-serial, informational pamphlets that were published by various far-left organizations. The pamphlets are divided into two subseries based on their marketing strategies. In subseries one, there are pamphlets that are specific to regions and/or countries. These pamphlets discuss issues that address an entire area. Subseries two, however, is divided into social movements and are not necessarily specific to countries. Movements of note include the Black Civil Rights, La Raza Civil Rights, Native American Civil Rights, and Gay Rights.

Housed separately are pamphlets from The Students for a Democratic Society (U.S.) titled U.S. Imperialism by David Gilbert and David Loud, 1968; United States 1967 by James Forman, 1969; The new radicals in the multiversity by Carl Davidson, 1968.
