The Week, 1933-1946

The Week, 1933-1946
This collection contains all issues of the leftist newsletter The Week, edited and published by Claud Cockburn between 1933 -1946. Over 600 issues (3,559 pages) are available as full-text searchable PDFs. For all its casual amateurishness, its snickering asides and shoestring budget, The Week told the movers and players of its day exactly how little they thought of each other, exposing the fairweather alliances of the 1930s and the utter futility of gentlemanly undertakings. Dismissed, denied and praised to the skies as much by its contemporaries as by its successors, Claud Cockburn's The Week is as essential reading in our day as it was in its heyday.
