The 'New World' and the cooperative colonisation project
Among the most remarkable of the O'Brienites' ventures in mid-Victorian London was their cooperative colonisation project and the settlement they established in Kansas - you can find out more about that here. The O'Brienites briefly published a monthly journal in support of the project. It was called the New World and proclaimed itself 'an advocate of Co-operative Emigration and Colonisation, and the emancipation of labour from the domination of landed and monied capitalists'.
I am posting here a short academic article I wrote about the New World, based on the solitary copy of the journal I was able to find - and I've also posted below the eight [ages of the surviving copy of the New World.
