MHI now features a page of Archives of Marxist-Humanism. It contains writings by Raya Dunayevskaya and others. More material will be added in the future.

Dunayevskaya’s books are not digitized; they are described on our Literature page, along with some pamphlets and works by others that are available for purchase.

We hope that the writings she selected and donated to Wayne State University, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs, Walter P. Reuther Library in Detroit, will soon be digitized. They are currently available, on microfilm, in some libraries and can be purchased from WSU. An incomplete guide to the WSU collection is available on-line, and complete guides are available from MHI.
