Most of the pamphlets in this part of the collection are American or British, created primarily in the urban hubs of New York and London. Their publishers include the British Socialist Party, Charles H. Kerr & Company, the Socialist Publication Society, and many other outlets for radical thought. Well known authors are Nikolaĭ Bukharin, Friedrich Engels, Peter Kropotkin, Vladimir Lenin, and Leo Tolstoy.
