Overview

From the Labadie Collection, University of Michigan

Like most radical political groups, the Communist Party of the United States relied heavily on pamphlets both to educate members about its policies and to present its views to the general public. The Party and its front organizations issued thousands of pamphlets on every conceivable topic ranging from Communist relations with the church and interpretations of American history to transcripts of meetings of the Communist International and accounts of what a Soviet America would look like. Some pamphlets were produced to rally activists for a particular protest demonstration, others contained important theoretical pronouncements from Soviet leaders.

The Labadie Collection contains a remarkably rich and varied selection of Communist pamphlets now reproduced on microfiche, making available to all scholars of radical political movements an invaluable primary research resource.
