      The Revolutionary Communist Party, U.S.A., was founded in October 1975. Its main predecessor organization, the Revolutionary Union, already possessed a number of local newspapers which were generally published on a monthly basis, and these newspapers (eventually called “The Worker”) continued as publications of the RCP. Over time, attempts were made to give these local newspapers more national content, to publish them more frequently, and in effect to make them local editions of a national newspaper. However, a qualitative improvement occured with the beginning of the publication of the weekly Revolutionary Worker newspaper in May 1979. This weekly newspaper has continued publication since then, though its name was changed to Revolution in 2005, in belated tacit acknowledgement by the Party of the shift of its central focus away from the life and struggles of the proletariat specifically, which had occurred decades previously.

      During the first two years each issue of the RW had an English and a Spanish section. Later on there were separate editions in English and Spanish, and for a time in Chinese and French. Unless otherwise noted, the issues posted here are in English or bi-lingual (English and Spanish), although we will also post the editions in other languages if we can obtain them.

      The issues available here are searchable PDF image scans, i.e., the text has been run through an Optical Character Reader program so that you can search for individual words, phrases or names. In a few issues—especially those scanned from bound volumes—there may be some photographic distortion of the images and pages, though we believe that the text itself is always legible. Many of these files are very large and require a fast Internet connection to download in a reasonable time.

      We are also listing some of the highlights of each English issue. The Spanish translations of these articles sometimes appear in a later issue.

      The RCP has made no secret of the fact that they have long been actively and consciously promoting a cult of personality around their leader, Bob Avakian. This personality cult has gotten more and more extreme over the decades, even to the present truly absurd degree of in effect seeming to promote Avakian as the indispensable savior of humanity! All of this is quite prominent in the issues of this newspaper, as are the many often interesting articles by Avakian himself. Most non-members of the RCP will no doubt find this cult repulsive and contrary to the Marxist principles. In addition, Avakian and the RCP are sometimes quite incorrect in their analysis of political and economic situations. One clear case of this was their “1980s analysis” in which they predicted world war and/or social revolution before the end of that decade. More fundamentally, the RCP has amply demonstrated that they have no real idea about how to effectively bring revolutionary ideas to the masses in the course of participating with them in their own struggles. The rejection of this well established fundamental method of making revolution, which was pioneered by Marx and Lenin, is in fact the worst of a number of very serious political problems with the RCP, worse even than the Avakian personality cult.

      Nevertheless, there is still a wealth of very useful revolutionary information and perspective in this massive and long-running journalistic effort to produce the Revolutionary Worker, particularly in the earlier years when deeper investigations into topics were being done. And this is why we are gradually posting more and more issues here. Many articles in this newspaper are indeed well worth serious study, even many years after they were written.

      The most recent issues, or individual articles from them, are available online at the offical RCP website at: http://revcom.us
