Socialism and Hope


New Interventions

New Interventions is a socialist magazine, independent of any party and of any left group. Our aim is to provide an open forum for all shades of radical left opinion. We believe that dialogue and discussion are particularly important at this time because of the collapse of the Soviet Union and official communist parties throughout the world, the increasing moves to the right of social democratic parties, and the sectarianism and bureaucratic centralism of left groups.

The latest issue of New Interventions (Volume 13, no 3) is now available.
