Changes to Twentieth Century Communism
From 2014 Twentieth Century Communism will be published twice yearly, in January and June. The journal continues to attract a wide range of high-quality contributions, and pressure of space has meant that some articles have had to be held over from the present issue. Moving to twice-yearly publications will allow us to accommodate a wider range of material.

From January, new subscriptions prices will be £30 for personal subscriptions and £145 for institutional subscriptions.
