Notes for a history of the IMG 17- South Asia Marxist Review

December 22, 2015

SAMR3The South Asia Marxist Review was a substantial theoretical journal established by a group of South Asian marxists resident in Europe and North America and produced with the assistance of the IMG.

According to a report of a meeting of the United Secretariat in 1975 (page 5) “2,000 copies of the review are printed in Britain, of which 1,000 are sent to Asia. Of these, some 500 are sent to India, free of charge, to a central address. These can be sold by the recipient in India, who can then use the income for political work there.”

We have the first two issues of SAMR

South Asia Marxist Review v1 no1

South Asia Marxist Review v1 no2

At least one further issue (no 3- pictured) exists. If any readers have a copy, please let us know!

    The Healyites also had an “Asian Marxist Review”, published by their Australian section (according to Robert Alexander) but so similar in format and style to the WRP’s “Labour Review” (2nd series) that it seems likely to have been printed at the WRP printshop. These days the title is used by the Taffeites. Seeing the name Upali Cooray reminded me that we need to archive his political writings at Revolutionary History.
