Living Marxism was the successor to The International Council Correspondence. The International Council Correspondence was a left/council communist magazine published in Chicago by the United Workers Party, a split from the Proletarian Party who united with dissident Marxist members of the I.W.W., renamed Groups of Council Communists. Published monthly from 1934 to 1938 and edited by Paul Mattick, contributors included Karl Korsch, Anton Pannekoek, Max Nomad, Daniel Guérin, Otto Rühle, Dwight Macdonald and Victor Serge, as well as English translations from co-thinkers around the world. In 1938, ICC was changed to Living Marxism and again to New Essays in 1942.
