The University of Illinois Press will publish the new Journal of Civil and Human Rights, beginning in 2015.
The mission statement for the Journal of Civil and Human Rights is: "Founded in 2014, the Journal of Civil and Human Rights is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, academic journal dedicated to preserving the histories of modern U.S.-based social justice movements and freedom struggles, including transnational ones, and their antecedents, influence, and legacies. The journal features research-based articles, interviews, editorials, and reviews of books, films, museum exhibits, and Web sites."
Fourteen new files, the bulk of which center on the year 1915.
Of particular interest is a piece on C.E. Russell's Nov. 29, 1915 endorsement of Woodrow Wilson's "Preparedness" efforts and the effective scuttling of his own likely nomination as the Socialist Party's 1916 Presidential nominee resulting from this contrarian perspective on war and militarism. Another dose of Debsiana is included, including four published articles and a letter.
