The first issue of ‘Communist Review’ after the ban was lifted by the Curtin Government on the magazine.
It was recently announced that funding for the National Library of Australia’s digital database Trove was under threat due to the Turnbull government’s search for ‘efficiency dividends’. This has led to a large social media campaign by academics, archivists and general enthusiasts of history from across the globe to #FundTrove, with several petitions to maintain funding for the website.
As this blog seeks to keep you all informed of online material relating to the history of communism and the global left, I thought you would like to know that Trove’s newspaper archive has now digitised several publications of the Communist Party of Australia. This includes:
The Communist (weekly from 1921 to 1923)
The Workers’ Weekly (weekly from 1923 to 1939)
Communist Review (monthly from July 1941 to June 1943)
