Defunct magazines known as The Week
"The Week" has been the title of two other weekly
newsmagazines founded in the United Kingdom. These are not connected in any way with the currently published magazine. Marxistjournalist Claud Cockburnlaunched the first publication known as "The Week" as a newsletter in the spring of 1933, after he had returned from reporting on Germany. It focused on the rise of fascism, in a style that anticipated " Private Eye" and won a wide readership, according to Cockburn's son.

["A Fine Old Conflict", quoted in [http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/SPcockburn.htm Spartacus Educational] ] It ceased publication in 1941. [ [http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/SPcockburn.htm Spartacus Educational] ] Ken Coatesand Pat Jordanrefounded "The Week" some time before 1965[http://members.optushome.com.au/spainter/Tariq.html] . They were Marxistmembers of the British Labour Partyconnected to the " New Left Review", to which Claud Cockburn occasionally contributed. Their version of "The Week" provided a socialistcritique of Harold Wilson's government, notably over its failure to oppose the Vietnam War. Jordan edited the paper until 1968, when he cooperated with Tariq Aliin launching " The Black Dwarf". At that time "The Week" became a monthly magazine called "International", which was published by the International Marxist Group.
