Novy Mir (1916 magazine)

Novy Mir (Russian: Но́вый Ми́р, IPA: [ˈnovɨj ˈmʲir], New World) was a magazine published by Russian social democratic émigrés in New York City in 1911–1917 until their return to Russia after the February Revolution of 1917. It was edited by Nikolai Bukharin and Alexandra Kollontai, who were briefly joined by Leon Trotsky when he arrived in New York in January 1917. V. Volodarsky, then living in Philadelphia, was one of the contributors.[1][2][3] Alexander Gumberg was business manager in Novy Mir's final days.
