    We regret to announce that the International Socialist Review, a project of the Center for Economic Research and Social Change (CERSC), is suspending publication after twenty-two years. We thank our subscribers, readers, and authors for their contributions and support. We hope that other publications will continue to carry the legacy of Marxist theory, analysis, and politics to future radicalizing generations.

    CERSC is committed to maintaining ISR online access at www.isreview.org until the end of this year and will locate an appropriate host for the archive.

    Subscribers with remaining issues will receive refund information. Please direct questions about refunds to [email protected] by June 1, 2019.

    Thank you for your support.
