New York: Communist Party U.S.A., 1932-1939. Paperback. Good +. 3016. [Radical Politics] Communist Party U.S.A. Thirty-Seven Issues of The Communist: A Magazine of the Theory and Practice of Marxism-Leninism. New York: Communist party of the United States of America, a broken run of thirty-seven issues, 1932 – 1939. Wraps, 6 by 9-inches with a 1/8-inch variation is some issues, 96 – 128 pp. ea. Included are: Vol. XI, Feb., May, Sept. – Dec. 1932; Vol. XII, Jan. – Feb., April, Aug. – Dec. 1933; Vol. XIII, Feb. – March, May, Aug., Oct. – Dec. 1934; Vol. XIV, Jan. – March, June – Sept., Nov. – Dec. 1935; Vol. XV, July – Dec. 1936; and Vol. XVIII, Sept. 1939, the Communist Party of the U.S.A. twentieth anniversary issue (slightly larger format than the rest). All the issues have light rubbing and wear to the wraps, edges and corners, faint yellowing of the pages, occasional foxing, and a few pencil marks here and there, along with these additional defects: sixteen pages of the Feb. 1933 issue are double printed and difficult to read and a lower corner of one page is torn off; splatter marks on the back cover of Nov. 1934, scuffing on the back of Feb. 1935; insect damage along the bottom edge of the back cover of July and Aug. 1935, along with a vertical crease down the center of the Aug. issue; pencil doodles on the back cover of July 1936; cover crease on Dec. 1936; the upper corner of the front cover and first twenty pages of the Dec. 1933 issue were chewed on by a baby (I’m sure it was a rosy-cheeked Communist baby, but the Comintern would have you believe it was a puppy. A filthy Trotskyite puppy); and lower corner wear and rodent nibbles on bottom edge of May 1932 – a filthy Trotskyite rat… Fifteen of the issues have stamps on the covers or content pages from the Daily Worker Book Shop or Workers Bookshop, both in Los Angeles. Walter Goldwater called this journal “the most important Communist publication in America.” Its articles include explanations of Bolshevism, Marxist-Leninist theory, the theories and history of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, lessons learned from U.S. strikes and numerous articles on American labor strikes, capitalism and the unemployed, a Leninist analysis of the “Negro Question,” book reviews, technocracy, battling against fascism, American revolutionary youth movements, American imperialism, building the United Front in Ford-controlled Dearborn, the Communist Manifesto, Hitler and the looming World War, Daniel DeLeon, the Third International, the October Revolution, Puerto Rican independence, and plenty of venom for Trotsky. (Goldwater 52)
