Socialist Register The Socialist Register was founded by Ralph Miliband and John Saville in 1964 as ‘an annual survey of movements and ideas’ from the standpoint of the independent new left. It is currently edited by Leo Panitch and Greg Albo, assisted by an editorial collective of eminent scholars in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Each volume is focused on a topical theme and characterized by the inclusion of relatively long, sustained analyses which cut across intellectual disciplines and geographical boundaries. The Socialist Register is published annually in October. The complete digital archive of 50 volumes published in English, as well as 3 volumes translated into Spanish, is available here.

Variant | Archive If you have read an article you like, please consider donating towards it. It is unfortunate that we have to inform you that Variant has been 'unsuccessful' in our funding application to Creative Scotland. As a result Variant for the first time since 1996, when Variant was relaunched as a free newsprint and online publication, is in the position of having to suspend publication. We will continue to work towards Variant resuming publication as soon as possible, at which point we would hope to restart our current subscription commitments.
