About the Socialist History Project

Over the past 100 years, socialists in Canada and Québec have written a vast amount on the political issues they considered important, but virtually none of those writings are available  today. The experiences, ideas, analyses and insights of a century of socialism are in danger of being forgotten and lost forever.

The Socialist History Project, launched in June 2004 by Ian Angus, aimed to recover that material and make it available on the web.

We aimed to publish three types of material. First, statements, reports and articles on key political issues and trends, written by revolutionary socialists over the past century. Second, essays by historians about the revolutionary left. And third, reminiscences and memoirs by participants in the socialist movement. This material is important not just to historians and archivists, but to the new generation of radicalizing youth.

Please note: The site will remain online,
but no more documents will be added added until further notice.

Many people have helped to make the Socialist History Project a success by helping us to find sources, contributing materials, scanning documents, proofreading, publicizing the website, making suggestions, and in many other ways.
