You can browse the

International Newsletter Online issue along with the past issues and other materials. The direct URL for the new 2007 INCS Online issue in PDF format.

This year’s INCS Online issue incorporates over 200 pages. We would like to thank everybody who made it possible through their contributions.

The conventional abridged paper version, as always, has been printed as a supplement to the Jahrbuch für Historische Kommunismusforschung, published by the Aufbau Publishing House in Berlin . You may now acquire the attractive 507p. Jahrbuch with many important and interesting articles (ISSN 0944-629X, ISBN-13: 978-3-351-02687-5) for the new, lowered price of 38,00 EUR (see the table of contents ).

We encourage everyone to contribute to the 2008 issue of the International Newsletter, to send suggestions, contributions and all kind of informational data on the various topics.
