New Masses, December 17, 1940


Stapled newsprint with some light edge and corner wear. The covers are still attached, but there are some slits on spine from top to middle staple. Paper is toned especially along edges but no more than would be expected from newsprint. New Masses (1926–1948) was one of the succesors to the original Masses (1912-1917). New Masses was associated with the Communist Party in the US, but at its inception was more a magazine of liberal and left wing ideology with writers as diverse as Hemingway, William Carlos Williams, John Dos Passos, Langston Hughes amd many more. It later became a more rigid, Marxist-oriented publication. This issue features articles by Ralph Ellison, R. Palme Dutt, Simon W. Gerson and others.The lead editorial, by R. Palme Dutt, is entitled "The Real Story of Washington-London Relations" which focuses on the destructive policies of these two of the Allies. By this time the New Masses sympathies were mainly with the Soviet Union. ; Vol. XXXVII No. 13; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 32 pages
