The newspapers of the American Communist Party, from 1919 through today_s editions are a unique source of information offered on microfilm by ProQuest�. With its highly partisan perspective, students will enjoy reading a newspaper that covers events and issues from a stance not typically seen in the nation_s major newspapers. The retrospective set includes People_s Daily World and its predecessors--The Daily Worker, The Ohio Socialist, The Toiler, The Worker, The Midweek Worker, and The Southern Worker. An annual subscription to People_s Weekly World (1 reel annually) keeps coverage current. As the official organs of the American Communist Party, the newspapers served as forums for the party cadre, including Jay Lovestone, William Z. Foster, Max Bedacht, Earl Browder, and many others. The collection provides a key source for anyone wishing to follow the winding course of official party policy, as well as American radicalism, labor studies, political thought, and a wide range of other disciplines.
