Archives of International Council Correspondence, Living Marxism, and New Essays

I'm looking for archives (preferably in english) of International Council Correspondence, Living Marxism and New Essays. These journals were edited by Paul Mattick and were essentially the same publication, with the name changing over time.

Thanks!

There was a book published in the 1970s, I believe, which reprinted all of these (I forget its title) but it apparently is impossible to find. I know people who have looked for it for years and cannot find it.

Your best bet is to go to a university library and see if you can get it on those clear sheets of transparency-like paper... I forget what that's called. That's how I got some stuff a while back.

All these publications are available on Microfilm - I think the company's name was Greenbriar Press. Check with University libraries.

The journals were reprinted in 1970 by the Greenwood Reprint Corporation under the title New Essays. There are 5 books (volume 1; 2; 3; 4; 5 & 6). If you are unable to find the books or the microfilm, a few of the most significant articles are available online at the kurasje archive (http://www.kurasje.org/arksys/archset.htm), such as the "Theses on Bolshevism" (Helmut Wagner) or "The Rise of a New Labor Movement" (Henk Canne-Meijer). Also, a number of the Paul Mattick and Anton Pannekoek texts available on the internet are taken from these journals. However, there is so much that is not online.

I spent a few hours yesterday reading through the 6 volume compilation of ICC/Living Marxism/New Essays.

I wish these books were easier to find because I'd love to have them at home!

Marxists.org should try to get the whole thing online.

Yoshomon, I and several others have been curious for awhile about any of Mattick's writings on the IWW in the thirties (including a program which he supposedly wrote and which was defeated, and any reasons why he left. If you run across any of these writings, please let me know.

The program is available (in German) on workereducation.org

He left because there was a opportunity to work with a split from the Proletarian Party (Buffalo and Rochester branches) called United Workers Party, which evolved into the above publications.

As was already mentioned, Greenwood Reprint published 6 volume compilation of ICC/Living Marxism/New Essays under the title 'New Essays'. Luckily for me, the University near me had it, though it's a bound periodical so I couldn't check it out.

According to WorldCat, here are the other libraries that have it:

US,KY UNIV OF KENTUCKY LIB
US,IL ABRAHAM LINCOLN PRESIDENTIAL LIBR
US,IL CHICAGO PUB LIBR
US,IL SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIV
US,IL UNIV OF ILLINOIS
US,IL UNIV OF ILLINOIS, CHICAGO

there's a forum discussion

As pghwob said, it should be translated!
