History and profileEdit

Founded by leading socialist politicians and theorists,[2] the magazine's first edition was released on 1 January 1883. After the abolition of the Anti-Socialist Laws, the magazine was transformed from a monthly into a weekly on 1 October 1890. In 1901 it became the official magazine of the SPD and its property.[2] The magazine's decline and end came with the hyperinflation of the 1920s. It became the most important organ of the SPD, competing with Sozialistische Monatshefte.[3] It was edited by Karl Kautsky and Emanuel Wurm until their withdrawal from the SPD in 1917. Following that, Heinrich Cunow took over as its chief editor.

Die Neue Zeit was succeeded by Die Gesellschaft [de],[3][4] whose first issue was published on 1 April 1924.[5]
