Keep Left, Vol. 1, No. 1, May 1951

Berkeley: Insurgent Press, 1951. Stapled mimeographed wrappers (5” x 8 ½”), [32] pp. Some toning to cheap paper, a few chips and closed tears along the top edge, VG. Four copies of this issue in OCLC (NYU, Harvard, UC Davis, National Library of Australia).

Apparently the sole issue of this Socialist Party magazine created to disseminate a more militant Socialist perspective that the editors contend is absent from the “Socialist Call,” the SP’s official publication. An editorial statement maintains that “only a militant Socialist program is capable of attracting the enthusiasm of a politically and morally disillusioned population” and an editorial expands on this statement. Articles include, “Inequality with Love” by Don Thomas, “Liberalism - A Blind Alley” by Jean Fitzell, “Left and Right: Double Trouble” by Pat du Rant, “Youth and the Future of Socialism” by Tom du Rant, and “Father Max and L’il Abner” by Vern Davidson. A factional publication reflecting dissent within the SP and providing insight into the Party’s attempt to maintain relevance in the post-war political environment. Item #06720
