New leader (New York, N.Y. : 1924).

Hide Profile

The New Leader (1924-2006) was the official (weekly) periodical of the Socialist Party until 1936 when, after a split in the SP, it became the official periodical of the Social Democratic Federation through 1946, after which it was published independently (including a period under the auspices of the American Labor Conference on International Affairs). It became a biweekly in 1961, and a bimonthly in 2000. Under Samuel M. (Sol) Levitas’s editorship (1936-61), it gained prominence as a voice of anti-communist liberalism that featured the work of prominent intellectuals.
