The New Masses (1926–1948) was an American Marxist magazine closely associated with the Communist Party, USA. It succeeded The Masses (1912—1917) and later merged into Masses & Mainstream (1948—1963). With the coming of the Great Depression in 1929 America became more receptive to ideas from the political Left and The New Masses became highly influential in intellectual circles.
