"The Press and the Revolution" was a Soviet literary criticism magazine published between 1921 and 1930. The Editor in Chief, from 1921 to 1929, was Russian critic, journalist, and historian Viacheslav Polonskii and the Editorial Board included Anatolii Lunacharskii, N. Meshcheriakov, I. Stepanov-Skvortsov, and M. Pokrovskii. The journal’s wide variety of topics included history of literature and publishing, literary criticism, and essays on writing literature. It also frequently published book reviews. For those first nine years of existence, the magazine was widely read and respected and immensely popular. In late 1929 the editorship was reorganized, Polonskii was removed from his post, and the members of the Editorial Board were replaced with Valerian Pereverzev, I. Matsa, etc. Very soon the journal was said to had turned into a propaganda tool for Pereverzev's 'Litfront' - a left-wing splinter group of RAPP (Russian Association of Proletarian Writers). Losing its wide audience, it ceased to exist in 1930. The present issue included articles on Maxim Gorky and Alexander Block as well as book reviews of various literary and historical works.
