Kommunist

Kommunist

 

the theoretical and political journal of the Central Committee of the CPSU; created by a resolution of the Organizational Bureau of the Central Committee of the RCP(Bolshevik) on Nov. 19, 1923. The first issue came out on Apr. 5, 1924. Until November 1952 the journal was called Bol’shevik.

Kommunist propagandizes and creatively develops Marxist-Leninist doctrine, fights to put the party’s general line into practice, and works for the construction of a communist society in the USSR. By elaborating the Leninist theoretical legacy, the journal helps to reveal its international character and its constantly increasing influence on the world revolutionary process. Since it was first published, Kommunist has printed more than 100 of Lenin’s virtually unknown or previously unpublished works, letters, and documents, as well as many works by Marx and Engels—either unknown ones or works translated into Russian for the first time. The journal systematically prints the most important documents of the CPSU and the international communist movement.

Kommunist extensively treats questions of Marxist-Leninist philosophy, political economy, the specific economics of industry and agriculture, the theory and practice of party organization, history, culture, and art. It provides theoretical elaborations of the problems of the international communist, workers’, and national liberation movements and exposes reactionary bourgeois ideology, “left-wing” and “right-wing” opportunism, revisionism, and dogmatism. Contributors to the journal include leading figures in the CPSU and fraternal parties, party, soviet, trade-union, and Komsomol workers, scholars, people engaged directly in production, cultural figures, artists, writers, and journalists. In addition to articles, Kommunist publishes critical bibliographical surveys and reviews, transactions of scholarly symposiums, and letters from readers.

Kommunist is intended for activists in party, soviet, economic, and scientific work, as well as for instructors, postgraduates, and students at higher educational institutions and broad circles of the Soviet intelligentsia. It is issued 18 times a year and has a circulation of more than 900,000 (1973).
