Series IV: Printed Material, 1933-1992, Undated

Contained here are many pamphlets, clippings, and a few assorted materials by C.L.R. James and others. Material from the Johnson-Forest Tendency period as well as material that pre-dates or follows that period is included.


Subseries IV.1: Pamphlets, 1933-1992, Undated, 1933-1992, Undated

The pamphlets in this subseries include James' first publication in Britain, "The Case for West Indian Government" (Hogarth Press, 1933) through his last, "Walter Rodney and the Question of Power" (Race Today Publications, 1983), and many of his writings, covering his varied interests, in between. Also here is "Down with Starvation Wages," which James helped striking share-croppers of South-East Missouri create during the Second World War.

The pamphlets produced by others include much literature of the radical left; these are arranged by writer or by topic.
