The International Newsletter of Communist Studies Online XV (2009), no 22

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Contributors of the International Newsletter,

Finally we are able to announce the release of the 2009 issue of the International Newsletter of Communist Studies Online. The online edition, which can be freely downloaded from the INCS website at <http://www.mzes.uni-mannheim.de/projekte/incs/onlinenewsletter.html <http://www.mzes.uni-mannheim.de/projekte/incs/> >, incorporates 364 pages, which is over a hundred pages more than the last issue and thus is the largest INCS issue ever (once again). The current issue includes 11 project presentations, 14 articles of a wide geographic and thematic spectrum, 13 book reviews and various informational items (see the table of contents below). We would like to thank everybody who made this possible through his contributions.

As usual, the bibliographical coverage of topics related to Communist Studies is a major focus of the International Newsletter in general and this issue in particular. Here you can find a new issue of the “International Bibliography of Communist Studies”, covering 742 book publications from 58 countries. Also, the “International Article Bibliography on Communist Studies and Related Topics”, which we introduced last year, has been fruitfully continued in this issue, covering articles published during the year 2008 in scientific journals and periodicals globally. 603 articles and other contributions have been retrieved for the year 2008. The continuous scholarly output worldwide (though with significant nuances) shows not only a high and still growing interest in comparative Communist Studies and a transnational view on Communist history in general, but also the growing participation of a new generation of scholars.

Participation of readers and correspondents continues to be highly appreciated for the bibliographical sections – but of course not only. Everyone is encouraged to send us suggestions, articles, contributions and all kind of informational data on the various sections for the 2010 issue of the International Newsletter.

Due to the 2009 issue having been one of the most extensive and time-consuming International Newsletter issues ever, and also due to new research tasks of the editors for 2009/2010 – Bernhard H. Bayerlein has been invited as guest researcher at the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung (ZZF) Potsdam, and Gleb Albert has been accepted for a doctoral fellowship at the Bielefeld Graduate School of History and Sociology –, the print version of the 2010 issue will be only rudimentary, featuring no articles or reviews. Yet we are asking you to contribute to the online version of 2010, which will be as extensive as usual and will gladly feature your contributions.

The deadline for the online version of the International Newsletter’s 2010 edition is the 15th of February, 2010.

We strongly advice you to follow the submission guidelines, which will be available at the INCS homepage within the next week. By following the style guidelines you will contribute to a speedy editing/ layout process, making the next issue get released with a less delay. Also please note that unsolicited reviews will not be accepted.

With kind regards and best wishes for your ongoing projects,

Bernhard H. Bayerlein, Executive Editor

Gleb J. Albert, Assistant Editor

Anúncio editorial da nova publicação Twentieth Century Communism

Editors Richard Cross, Norry LaPorte, Kevin Morgan, Matthew Worley

Communism was one of the defining political movements of the twentieth century. Viewed from different perspectives, it was at once a utopia, an ideology, a system of government, an apparatus of terror and an international political movement stretching to almost every corner of the globe. None of these aspects of its history will be overlooked in Twentieth Century Communism. Nevertheless, the journal’s primary concern is with communism as an international movement of unparalleled scope and cohesiveness. Since the collapse of the USSR and its satellites nearly twenty years ago, this phenomenon has given rise to a rich historical literature, informed both by the accessibility of communist archives and wider developments in social, political and cultural history.

Twentieth Century Communism will provide an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry-point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians. Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties themselves. However, its remit will also extend to the movement’s antecedents and rivals, the responses to communism of political competitors and state systems, and to the cultural as well as political influence of communism.

Twentieth Century Communism is a peer-reviewed journal of 256 pages appearing annually in May. As well as peer-reviewed research and discussion articles, it includes reviews, conference reports, key and a noticeboard section. The core of each issue will be provided by a themed section.

Issue 1 focuses on leadership cults. Contributors include Balázs Apor (on Rákosi); Anthony Howe (on Tom Mann); Claude Pennetier and Bernard Pudal (on Stalinism and the cult of the worker); and Tauno Saarela (on Kuusinen and Finland). There is also an interview with Hermann Weber.

Editorial advisers:
Aldo Agosti; Bernhard Bayerlein, Sylvain Boulouque; Geoff Eley; Jean-François Fayet; Irina Filitova; Nina Fishman; Ben Fowkes; José Gotovitch; Subhanlal Gupta; Stephen Hopkins; Edward J. Johanningsmeier; Kevin McDermott; Stuart Macintyre; Svend Rybner; Tauno Saarela; Steve Smith; Daniela Spenser; Brigitte Studer; Ronald Suny; Geoffrey Swain; Andrew Thorpe; Alexander Vatlin; Hermann Weber; Serge Wolikow.
