A political document articulating the ideology of the Fourth International. Following more than two years of deliberations, this is the draft program submitted in January, 1939 by the Political Committee of the Revolutionary Workers League U.S. The Second Convention of the organization in Chicago December 1937 accepted the outline of this document and a special committee of the Central Committee worked on drafting this document in the ensuing years.*** Format: 8.5 x 11 inch sheets, mimeographed in blank ink from a typewritten original, bound with three staples. Condition: Some slight wear and age toning along margins. Staples are a bit rusted, several are cracked but the pages are intact and not loose. Otherwise, clean and unmarked. *** This draft was subject to the final approval of the Central Committee and membership, although it has been provisionally accepted by the 2nd Convention and the 5th Plenum of the CC. The international program gave special consideration to the problem of the working class under American imperialism. It recognized the role of the U.S. in world affairs while citing the need for targeted programs to meet the needs of the working classes in each country. This document loosely quotes from Marx and Lenin without any citations of their sources or use of quotation marks in the customary way.***OCLC # 270690440. Only two copies of this document are available through WorldCat: at the Chicago History Museum and at Bibliothèque de documentation internationale contemporaine in France.*** This is a scarce copy, in collectible condition, of an important document of the Socialist Fourth International in the United States.
