Welcome to the New Ground Archive!

This page is a table of contents to the text archive of past issues. There are few graphics and no frames; it's intended to be simple. Aside from the universal accessibility of text, the main reason for this minimalist approach is the volume of material in the context of its construction being a spare time project.

Not all issues of New Ground are included as the computer files for many of the earliest no longer exist. Believe me, retyping or scanning and editing all of the missing issues is not a realistic option.

Beginning with New Ground 101 in 2005, the publication also began to be distributed via email. There is a significant overlap in distribution modes, but a majority of those receiving the print edition do not receive the email editions. The email editions are almost all posted. (The dog ate one issue.)

 A note for those interested in obscure history: when the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) merged with the New American Movement in 1982, the Chicago DSOC chapter's newsletter, Turn Left, became the newly merged Chicago DSA newsletter. This was a modest mimeographed affair that lasted no more than one or two issues past the birth of the new organization. I don't know of anyone who has a complete collection of Turn Left. Turn Left was replaced by The Chicago Socialist, a union printed bi-monthly (mostly) magazine that was published from 1982 through 1984. Likewise, I don't know of anyone who has a complete collection of this publication. The Chicago Socialist was replaced by DSA News. This was in fact a newsletter that was issued usually monthly from 1985 through most of 1987 when it was replaced by New Ground. Rather more ephemeral (but photocopied rather than mimeographed) than The Chicago Socialist, any complete collection of DSA News would be a surprise.

If you're looking for something in particular, I'd recommend Google as a search engine. Using their advanced search options, you can restrict your seach to chicagodsa.org. Or, feel free to ask, though I can't always guarantee a speedy response. Students doing papers should note that this site has been indexed by turnitin.com, so be sure to cite your sources!

New Ground is the publication of Chicago Democratic Socialists of America. Unless the article is the text of an official resolution, the opinions expressed are solely those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of Chicago DSA.

New Ground (the print edition) is distributed free to Chicago DSA members, but snail mail subscriptions are available, costing $10 for 6 issues. Send a check or mail order made payable to Chicago DSA to:

New Ground
Chicago DSA
3411 W. Diversey Ave, Room 7
Chicago, IL 60647

If money is a problem, you can add yourself to the Chicago DSA mailing list. You will receive announcements of Chicago DSA campaigns, events, and notice of when the latest issue is posted on the web.

In solidarity,
