a pamphlet: a brochure, a leaflet, a booklet
A 'pamphlet' is a short printed book with a paper cover. By definition, it is any printed material which isn't 'bound' like a book. Pamphlets provide information about a variety of topics: politics, religion, new technology etc. Note that pamphlets aren't necessarily related to political ideas or statements, and that they can contain information on a wide range of topics.
