One of the long-term projects of the Second World Urbanity group is to develop a primary source reader for courses on the history of socialist cities or related topics. Therefore, even though many of our favorite primary sources have not been translated into any other languages, we’d like to know which primary sources you think would work well in a primary source reader.
