Dear readers,

Thanks for being a reader of Political Affairs and a visitor to our website.

As you know, we have a long history of Marxist theoretical analysis dating back many decades. Our pages have been graced by some of the world’s finest Marxist theoreticians, academics, working class intellectuals and cultural workers.

Over the years, our dedicated readers have written articles, essays or poetry, commented on articles or posted pieces on our blog, enriching our publication in countless ways.

At one time, Political Affairs was one of the few Marxist journals in existence. Today, Marxism has widely diffused into society, academia, the labor and people’s movements.

Times change and so must our work.

We have long felt the Marxist ideas and analysis in Political Affairs deserves much wider readership. To make that possible, we need a new, more powerful vehicle.

Therefore the Political Affairs website will cease to publish. However, our Marxist ideas and analysis is not going away. It has found a new home: is undergoing a redesign to develop a multi-media website capable of reaching a vastly larger audience with Marxist and left journalism, political analysis, culture and theoretical work.

I will be joining the editorial collective. You can submit articles, essays, poems, reviews and theoretical works for consideration to

Again thanks for your support and readership all these years.
