Journal “Sozialismus”

Sozialismus is a monthly intended as a forum for discussion among political leftists, trade unionists and activists in political movements in the Federal Republic of Germany. It publishes analyses of the political and economic situation in Europe, comments by left trade unionists in its Forum Gewerkschaften section, and reports on international developments, for example US-hegemony in the coalition against terrorism, the crisis of the New Economy, the decline of the Third World, etc. The editors were motivated to found a new journal in response to the shortcomings of German socialist/communist periodicals in the early 1970s. Since 1972 more than 250 issues of Sozialismus have appeared.
