    5-0 out of 5 stars No other weekly like it
    This is, plainly put, the best news periodical out there.Sure, others can "report" what's happening in the world, but The Economist includes analysis and puts events in proper perspective to provide the much sought after "why?".Upon hearing of the magazine, the title seemed to suggest a dry, tough read about finance and economics.Not so at all.It's sort of like an international, intelligent version of Time or Newsweek, with a more objective and rational feel.It's a surprisingly easy read as well, with a great informal British style, infused with wit throughout yet always smart and informative.Well worth the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you're going to read only one news periodical . . .
    The Economist should be it.It is the most thorough single news periodical out there, period.Enjoy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It Really Is That Good
    Read one Economist article, and you'll know why it's considered in a league of its own, and why everyone from business leaders to Prime Ministers to regular people like you and me love it so much.

    One of the best attributes the Economist possesses is its ability to present news and analysis on an unsurpassed intellectual level, while at the same time being very much down to earth, at times even getting comical commentary in. I have never once read an article where I sensed bias. I'm very good at detecting bias, and even when it perhaps is bias I'm inclined with, it ruins the legitimacy for me. You'll notice they do not attribute articles to specific authors. This is because the magazine wants each article to represent the Economist as a whole, and not a particular person. It's a refreshing formula, in an age where some writers feel the need to be long winded and rush to grab individual attention at every turn.

    The Economist has been around for 150+ years for good reason. It holds incredible integrity, and it doesn't cater to anyone.

    For international news and perspective in particular, I have yet to find a weekly publication on the Economist's level for the mere reason there are none. I'm a student in International Affairs, and the insight and rationality found in the pages devoted to the world, 1/3 of each issue in fact, is the crowning jewel of the magazine. That's in addition to its coverage on business, finance, technology, arts and books. It's truly a complete package.

    You probably couldn't do anything better to improve your mind and worldview with a little over $100 than to buy an Economist subscription. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars For all those interested in world politics
    I will give this publication five stars because it is one of the few magazines that has maintained its professional integrity without begging for a commercial outlook or seeking partisan funding.
    Foreign Affairs has so far offered the most relevant articles by the world's top experts and decision makers. For instance, Foreign Affairs was the first magazine to publish Samuel Huntington's article The Clash of Civilizations in the early 1990s. The article, which Huntington later developed and published in a book, proved to be one of the most controversial ones and provoked a debate that has been going on until the day these lines were written.
    The articles are more often than not comprehensive, simple and written by experts. This is not to say that all the published pieces are flawless. Yet, the articles are overall enlightening and a must-read for all those interested in world politics.
    Finally, the book review section is particularly interesting, even though most of the articles there are brief. Publishers should consider giving more attention to the book market and offer more reviews on the politics books best sellers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars International affairs just a step away from the players
    Over the last year, every issue of Foreign Affairs has been punctuated with significant essays from political and academic notables. The magazine also includes occasionally heated responses to previous essays and candid reviews of current books on international affairs. The publication frequently serves as a means for those aspiring to be in or recently pushed out of power in American government to express their views. Political figures such as Condeleeza Rice writing during the Clinton administration, former middle east envoy Dennis Ross (most recent issue), or Clinton National Security aid Strobe Talbot might fit into this category. Current executive or legislative eminences are much less frequent contributers - although Senator Chuck Hagel did provide a recent, but not especially enlightening, offering.

    There were a number of informative articles in the last two publications of the magazine. Each issue had one particularly worthwhile essay. For November/December Gal Luft and Anne Korin wrote aboutunarmed oil tankers, narrow, crowded and poorly guarded sea lanes and what steps terrorists may have already taken to position themselves to exploit these vulnerabilities. In the January/February issue Edward Luttwak presents the first persuasive argument I've seen for immediate disengagement from Iraq. He explains convincingly how a withdrawal coupled with extremely deft diplomacy might shift the burden of establishing a stable Iraqi government from the US to Iraq's neighbors and provide the added bonus of an improved US image in the Muslim world and continental Europe.

    Foreign Affairs is well worth the time of anyone who has an interest in becoming conversant with current political issues.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Only Magazine I Read From Cover to Cover
    The only magazine I read from cover to cover is Foreign Affairs, published by the distinguished bi-partisan Council on Foreign Relations. Ideas and issues presented in each issue are discussed six months later in the news. A recent example of this phenomenon is the publication of Daniel Yergin and Michael Stoppard's The Next Prize, about strategic issues surrounding the future of natural gas as an energy source. The article appeared in late 2003, and since then the concerns raised in the article have reverberated in business publications, energy conferences and Sunday talk shows.

    Since my childhood I have thought of Foreign Affairs as an influential publication in leadership circles. Over a quarter century ago, I remember reading that Henry Kissinger promoted Daniel Patrick Moynihan as US Ambassador to the United Nations on the basis of an article he wrote in Foreign Affairs. As the founder of a company dedicated to cultural and business travel to Russia, I need to stay ahead of the knowledge curve with regards to the world, rather than just be informed of events. I find Foreign Affairs to be the single most valuable tool to stay informed about foreign policy, trends in world affairs, and current political thought. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quarterly View of the World
    This is an excellent magazine that is put out quarterly with the best writers of Foreign Policy in the world writing articulate and current articles about the state of affairs of various countries, problem spots and emerging issues. My favorite article is their myth breaking of a controversial issue. The myth-breaking feature of the quarter states a general perception and then breaks it down into usually 10 myths that support that perception. They then challenge each myth by a more accurate and fact full analysis that essentially defeats the myth giving you a more accurate state of affairs. One such article is the perception that terrorists have hijacked the Muslim religion, which is a myth as the writer indicates through various arguments that the opposite is true. Another such article was about the Neocons in the Bush administration, by breaking the myths about the Neocons, the article gives you a better understanding about what they really think and what their goals are. This quarter's magazine features a great article about Colin Powell explaining why he dos not seem to have a strong presence as a Secretary of State while he still maintains a positive public rating. An interesting contrast that FP fully explains.

    The only negative about the magazine is that comes out only quarterly but these well thought out articles provide a lot to digest in between.

    5-0 out of 5 stars FP Deserves Its Excellent Reputation
    FP is published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Articles in the current issue (May-June 2004) are about al Quaeda, world trade in small arms, selling to the world's four billion poor people and American public opinion on Iraq, terrorism, North Korea and free trade.There are also articles on such subjects as saving endangered species and a comparison of Kerry and Bush on foreign policy. FP is marking the second anniversary of the magazine's ambitious attempt to rank the world's 21 rich countries on "how their policies help or hinder social and economic development in poor countries." First place on this year's report card goes to the Netherlands while the United States is ranked seventh.

    There are still other articles plus reviews and a lively letters section. The latter is devoted solely to reactions to an earlier article by Samuel Huntington on the impact on the United States from Hispanic immigration.

    The contributors include mostly academics with a sprinkling of journalists and other professionals. Some of the recent writersare Allen J. Hammond, C.K. Prahalad, Jason Burke, Steven Kull, Kenneth Rogoff, Minxin Pei, Tamar Jacoby and Patrick Buchanan. The articles cover timely topics and they are written in a highly readable style. The reader does not necessarily have to be an academic to enjoy this publication. FP definitely deserves its reputation for excellence.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Yawn.Provocative it is not.
    I find Foreign Policy to be a bit too cocky, dull, and long-winded.I subscribed hoping to find stimulating intellectual discussion, but Foreign Policy can't seem to shake its centrist shackles.Its articles are less well-researched and provocative than they are lengthy, and I was less than impressed with many so-called "expert" authors who seized the opportunity to publish op-eds rather than engaging original arguments.Foreign Policy's decision to feature Samual Huntington's bunk argument regarding the Hispanic "threat" to America on the cover is a case in point.

    On the other hand, Foreign Policy is not a bad read if it is considered supplemental.Just don't expect to be blown away. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top Quality
    The art of short non-fiction writing lives on.I have subscribed to this magazine since 1981, a very different world then, but have been consistently impressed with WQ.This magazine has always demonstrated an excellence in style, content and quality of writing.My favorite is that it has reviews of other magazine articles, something I always look forward to.If controversy or an edge is what you are looking for, this may not be your cup of soup.But if you are looking for a condensed and concise article on a subject you may know nothing about, coming away feeling just a little bit more informed about the world, I can't think of a better source.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Organ of the Radical Center
    How to characterize this magazine? It's a cross between Reader's Digest and US News and World Report, with a higher Flesch-Kincaid rating. Most of the articles read like popularizations of the output of political science departments (with a bias toward Princeton, of course). In my year's subscription, I found it a little too safe, accommodating, and middling, and I did not renew.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent.
    This is definitely the cream of the crop.I would recommend this publication to anyone.It is well-rounded, thoughtful, and aware of present events without being sensationally consumed by them.Definitely worth subscribing. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive journal of international affairs
    The National Interest stands tall with that other great international journal, Foreign Affairs. With all the similarities between the two journals, there are some differences. Both are quarterly journals running 150-200 pages, containing 15-20 clearly written in-depth articles about U.S. policy and world affairs. Both feature articles written by a wide range of experts on a wide range of important topics. They are both excellent journals and for those who have the time and interest to read both, they would complement each other very well. I don't have time to read both, so I had to choose one. I chose The National Interest. I feel that Foreign Affairs focuses more on the political side of things, while The National Interest gets into politics as well as ideas, culture, and history. The National Interest does not seem to suffer from any unreasonable bias, but, as with Foreign Affairs, certain authors can take positions that could be identified as biased. But "reasonable" and "balanced" are key words for any news journal; even experts can disagree in a complicated world. The overall effect is that reading The National Interest is enjoyable and helps me to understand the what, when, why, where, and who of the world. If you already read and enjoy Foreign Affairs, The National Interest is a slamdunk. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars High Enlightenment.
    I used to have a subscribtion to Commentary for a couple of years and always enjoyed it.Some of the writers such as Joe Epstein, Terry Teachout, and David Gelernter are unsurpassed in their intelligence and creativity.Basically, there's not one story or essay that Joseph Epstein has ever written that I won't stop what I'm doing in order to absorb.Yet, what prevents me from giving Commentary a five star rating is that the letters section in the front is too long and also some of the articles inside will only appeal to Jews or those interested in Judaism (although it really is a small percentage of the magazine that is devoted to religious concerns).Also, its format can be problematic as it's tough to read due to its column structure.However, these are minor concerns because when Commentary publishes a great article they are lengthy, memorable, and you'll always treasure them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Conservative Magazine with some humor
    One of the funniest magazines around.In a recent article, the Weekly Standard proposed massively expanding the IRS to help pay for the massive debt and budget deficit.Which group did the "Weekly Standard" say should be targeted for this increased IRS presence (and massive increase in tax rate - for some 100%)? The Entertainment Industry.The reality tv show contestants, the teen-pop singers and the like.The article noted that normally massive taxation would hurt an industry, but with all the people that really want fame, that go all out to get their 15 minutes of fame, the industry would continue along (I'm curious if O'Rourke realizes that the tax would be applied to similar writers).Another O'Rourke article provided the readers with an alternate Inaugural Address by Bush (subtitle: "What if George W. Bush weren't a compassionate conservative . . ."; quote: "The media say that I won the election on the strength of moral values.If the other fellow had become president, would the media have said that he won the election on the strength of immoral values?").

    In all seriousness, this magazine is a very clear detailed neo-conservative look at the issues (neo-con? - interestingly, it would appear that many of the writers used to be liberals).The magazine does not always present just the conservative perspective, and does not always agree with Bush. Another recent article was by a current liberal, ex-communist British writer and his reaction to George Galloway's testimony before the US Senate. An editorial in that recent issue was all about the dictator in Uzbekistan, an US ally in the war on terror.The editorial notes that toleration of this dictator and his brutality will undermine Bush's current foreign policy.

    It should be noted that the magazine does not seem to have journalists, and few staff writers, most appear to be called "contributing editors."

    It is jarring, though, when I read the magazine then read articles in some of my other subscriptions."Variety" and "Weekly Standard" rarely agree.For that matter, I'm somewhat surprised by how often the "Weekly Standard" and "Business Week" disagree.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    After reading a few of the other reviews, I am again baffled by the left/liberal take on things.This is a CONSERVATIVE magazine!!Liberals, open at your own risk!You just MIGHT encounter a differing view point than you own!Goodness.The articles are informative, indepth, humorous, and thoughtful.It's a good read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible
    This magazine is another part of the Murdoch empire.Its worst
    sin is that its boring and not very conservative. It was
    founded by William Kristol, John Podhoretz and Fred Barnes to
    be a institutional conservative publication under tight control
    and with deep enough pockets to dwarf its smaller rivals.

    When conservativism was a living movement, it was best
    characterized as a collection of independent voices who
    while they respected each other didn't always agree with
    each other.Now, following the Murdoch formula, its about
    getting as many people whatever their ideology on the
    payroll.The price of being on the payroll is of course
    not rocking the boat.

    Reading conservative publications these days is like reading
    the transcripts of someone engaging in a monologue
    in an echo chamber.Its strange that there is so much
    "conservative" media today, but that most policy decisions
    don't get debated or even discussed among conservatives.
    They seem more interested in covering liberals than discussing
    ideas or making proposals.And for god's sake, no more articles
    by those who are agnostics in their private life talking
    about how america needs more god this or god that.If your
    going to be religious, at least find someone who is sincere.
    And no more articles on the greatness of family
    by childless unmarried women who are totally devoted to careers
    to the exclusion of anything else.

    5-0 out of 5 stars National Review is very revealing !read it !
    National Review is very revealing and more educational than any government school.

    People sometimes mistakenly say that the National Review is "conservative" but that is misleading.NR criticizes both big-spending democrat-socialists like Clinton, and also republican-socialists who are twice as socialistic as Clinton (in social spending alone). The only way that NR can be called biased is that they drone on about the socialists (Democrats and Republicans) and ignore everyone who wants to cut government (Libertarians).

    National Review is stuck in silly left-right political analysis, as taught in government schools. It is unaware of the Nolan chart or Diamond chart. It also uses the word "liberal" unprofessionally to mean "left." Its habit forgets the etymology of "liberal" for "liberty" (against government and for laissez-faire capitalism). That bad habit explains why republicans and democrats are the same: socialists.National Review is an example of why government schools are unconstitutional and must end.

    NR doesn't do well addressing the massive growth in government in the USA. It seems like NR doesn't think that government in the USA is big enough yet.

    NR is not libertarian and it uses the misnomer "public schools" to mean "government schools."No one would trust the government to tell the truth if it published newspapers or magazines like National Review. Why would the government tell the truth in government schools?

    The National Review doesn't have a problem with "patriotism" and the pledge of allegiance. Big problem: People at NR don't arise each morning to gather with neighbors and robotically chant, as they only "love" the pledge when government's schools lead children in robotic chanting every morning for twelve years of their lives upon the ring of a bell, like Pavlov's lapdogs of the state. Did I mention that NR is an example of why government schools are unconstitutional and have destroyed a "free press" and why government schools must end?

    NR suggests that it doesn't know that the pledge was written by a socialist (Francis Bellamy) in the USA and that the original salute was a straight-arm salute (as shown in web image searches for "original socialist salute"). NR doesn't know of the news-breaking discovery by the historian Rex Curry that the straight-arm salute of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis) came from the military salute and from the original pledge of allegiance in the USA, and not from ancient Rome.NR doesn't realize that Bellamy put flags in every school to promote a government takeover of education for nationalization and socialism.

    NR is an example of why some educated socialists (socialists who know the origin of the pledge) laugh at the National Review, because socialists presume that NR has been duped into supporting socialism and are ignorant of the pledge's socialist past.

    To measure its intellectual honesty, you should consider that NR has never displayed a historic photograph of the original pledge of allegiance ever to their audience nor discussed the ominous parallels.

    Francis Bellamy and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy were national socialists who idolized the military and wanted to nationalize the entire US economy, including all schools. It was a philosophy that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part) where millions were murdered (62 million by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, 35 million by the Peoples' Republic of China, 21 million by the National Socialist German Workers' Party) in the worst slaughter in history. That is why the Bellamys are known as America's Nazis.All Holocaust Museums could expanded three-fold with Wholecaust Museums.

    Yes, the government was taking over schools in the USA and imposing segregation by law and teaching racism as official policy. As under Nazism, Jehovah's Witnesses and others in the USA were persecuted for refusing to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant. They were also expelled from government schools and had to use the many better alternatives. Thereafter, the Bellamy legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities.

    After WWII ended, the USA's government schools continued segregation and racism, stopping in the 1960's.The USA also continued its Nazi numbering (social security from 1935) and its robotic pledge, with no stopping.

    Today, the USA numbers babies, and government schools demand the numbers for enrollment, and the numbers track homes, workplaces, incomes, finances, and more, for life.School laws still tout the daily pledge, a bizarre ritual shunned by every other country.

    NR has discussed plans for "reform" of social security.At the height of Nazi power, the USA's government deliberately stepped onto the same path with national numbering imposed in 1935 with the social security system.The federal government was growing massively and attempting to nationalize the economy in many ways.The US Supreme Court struck down much of the new legislation as unconstitutional until justices until the craven FDR pressured them into the "switch in time that socialized nine."

    National Review has reported on social security reforms that would invest social security taxes in private businesses and provide an avenue for the government to nationalize all private businesses in addition to schools. It is a scheme that would impress the Bellamys.NR does not have the ethics to report the other side of the story (the proper side): ending government involvement in education, and ending the social security scam, its taxes and its Nazi numbering.If the antidisestablishmentarianism does not end, then the USA's police state will grow.

    NR has another bad habit: overuse of the hackneyed word "Nazi" so much that it might cause one to wonder if they know what the abbreviation abbreviates. Many people forget that "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party," and one reason people forget is because the word "Nazi" is overused by media mouthpieces (e.g. National Review) who never say the actual name of the horrid party.A good mnemonic device is that the sick socialist swastika represented two overlapping "S" letters for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

    It is a reminder that in many ways National Review and the media are still government mouthpieces.

    Overall, the magazine is very revealing and educational and worth the time to review.Let's hope for improvements in the future.

    1-0 out of 5 stars One of the Worst Magazines Around
    If you want to keep yourself in delusions and in the dark about what's really going on in the world, read this magazine. National Review is for people who sympathize with Christian jihadists and white supremacists. Wouldn't want to be in that camp if I were you.Read Time, Mother Jones, The Nation, or the American Prospect instead.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not the Worst, Far from the Best.

    I got this magazine as a gift, starting a few months back.I really can't say I'm impressed.

    Admittedly, I'm much more left leaning than this conservative (sometimes very, very conservative) magazine.Dispite my bias, I can still recognize good writing and well made points - this magazine generally lacks both.This isn't to say that I've never seen a good point or anything, they're just fairly rare.If you want to read a well-written, well-argued, conservative mag this isn't it. ...

    Editorial Review

    Founded in 1925, The New Yorker hardly changed for its first 60 years, both in its dry, type-heavy design and in its reputation as a writer's and reader's haven. In 1987 it was on only its second editor when management decided to shake things up. A rocky decade ensued, but The New Yorker is now back at the top of its game under David Remnick's editorship. Each issue offers commentaries and reporting on politics, culture, and events, with a focus that's both national and international; humor and cartoons; fiction and poetry; and reviews of books, movies, theater, music, art, and fashion. Several times a year special issues focus on a theme--music, fashion, business. The writing is mostly first-rate, frequently coming from top literary and journalistic talents. The New Yorker's weekly issues can seem overwhelming--so much good stuff to read, piling up so fast!--but it's as easy to dip in for a small snack as it is to wade in for a substantial meal. --Nicholas H.

    4-0 out of 5 stars good magazine with sensible left of center views
    New Yorker is one of the best magazines available in the US. It has a good mixture of articles on current events, culture, fiction, humor. And one shouln't forget those notorious cartoons. The lengths of the articles range from the very long to the very short, and should amply sustain one's weekly need for reading material.
    Please be aware that all articles have a coat of liberal paint. But the New Yorker is probably the most sensible left of center media source in this country.

    I have been subscribing to the New Yorker for five years now, and it has been a very enlightening experience.The New Yorker does its part in covering big news stories, but it's not really a news magazine.The perspectives are unique (and admittedly lean to the left), and the kind you're not likely to get elsewhere.The authors use the first person because they tend to be part of the stories they're covering.Take Jon Lee Anderson, probably the most credible reporter covering the Middle East today.His "Letters From" various cities involve accounts of his meetings with locals and leaders.

    Other segments are more like NPR stories--unique perspectives on largely uncovered topics that aren't time-sensitive.You'll get in-depth looks into developments in medicine, law, architecture, etc., that otherwise wouldn't get on your radar unless you were in that profession.And, the writers incorporate the "larger questions" in stories focused on recent events.Like Malcolm Gladwell's recent account of a playwright who plagiarized material from a former article written by him.He parlayed his personal struggle into a good summary of legal and ethical positions on the use or development of one person's idea by another.

    I have grown to look forward to reading the Fiction selection each week.Sometimes I don't like the piece, but I enjoy getting the chance to read writers that I normally wouldn't and those that I normally would.

    Additionally, the magazine has added more dedicated issues--most recently the "Food" issue, in addition to standbys like the "Style" and "Fiction" issues.I loved the "Food" issue, especially one writer's account of the search for truly authentic pasta that involved a work night in Mario Batali's kitchen and a trip to Italy.

    I enjoy the balance of hard news, balanced interest stories, and arts that the New Yorker provides.I began my subscription to get a different perspective than what I got from local Southern news, and I keep it for the same reasons and many more.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is extremely left wing
    I am a physician and purchased this to have a few magazines in my waiting room.I will not renew my subscription because this magazine has become so left wing.The covers and articles are too contriversial and one sided.I will continue with Smithsonian, Scientific American and People as my waiting room magazines.I was a bit surprised by how extremely left wing this magazine has become. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Become much more Conservative lately
    We had a subscription from 2001-2004.In the last year of that subscription, the magazine came to focus more and more on politics, and most of the political articles were written from a conservative perspective or assuming a neoconservative world view as background.Letters disagreeing with anything Robert Kaplan wrote were rarely, if ever, printed.(Though I know for a fact they received them!)We dropped our subscription and picked up the New Yorker instead.Conservatives however may want to take a new look at this magazine.The reviews suggesting it is liberal must be based on pre-2003 reading.Occasional issues we have bought since dropping our subscription confirm that the conservative slant is persisting.The quality of the writing is still reasonable however, and it explores issues in depth (albeit from one side).

    2-0 out of 5 stars WISHY-WASHY, WISHFUL & ASHAMED: AMERICAN LIBERALISM...
    From reading some of my recent reviews, you would think I am becoming a political guy. I'm not. At least, I am only as far as I feel my relationship with Jesus Christ dictates.

    A case in point: The Atlantic Monthly. I used to subscribe to this magazine when I was in late High School-early College. I think my brother got me a gift subscription.

    I am a follower of some more "high brow" cultural things (keep in mind that the threshold for for being "high brow" in America is always being lowered, and in fact can be lowered physically by simply driving south), and my brother thought I would enjoy the magazine. I was usually underwhelmed by the depth of articles (or snippets) relating to the arts, music, and theater in The Atlantic. I was also disappointed by the magazine's political slant.

    The Atlantic is kind of like the New York Times and CBS in that it tries (tries) to play the "wink-wink, no, of course we're not liberal" game.

    A related aside before I move on: As you will see if you read the rest of this review, I line up with neither "the left" or "the right" (the Blue or the Red) in American politics, but when it comes to the press--if you're not going to try to be balanced, I would much prefer you to be blatant about your bias. To use a non-sequitur paraphrase of Lincoln in his abolitionist days: "I would rather move to Russia and take my despotism pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy." At least the misguided right has that going for its press apparatus.

    Anyway, The Atlantic is probably the paragon of the inefficient, unfocused, in some senses, self-loathing liberal movement in America. So many of its articles take a half-ass, speculative look at issues NO ONE in main street America cares about.

    I am not a great fan of George W. Bush's Right, but the alternative is almost just as sad.

    The only redeeming aspect of what this magazine has become (I read a few issues this past election year) is the writing of Robert Kaplan. I don't buy his take on geo-politics, but he is one of the few people on the left who is doing any original thinking in this area at all.

    As for my own politics (if you or anyone else cares), I feel both sides have woefully fallen short of the demands of The Kingdom. In some ways I am more Liberal than the Democrats and more Conservative than the Republicans. People come first in God's economy. Only by changing the hearts of individuals can we ever change the world.

    It saddens me deeply that here, in the richest, most powerful nation in the history of the world, people on both sides (if a person even cares enough to be on a side) allow themselves to be duped into hating each other rather than living up to our great potential.

    This magazine is just one example of where we as a country are going so very, very wrong.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Glaringly and Inappropriately Biased
    The A-Monthly iis by far the most obviously biased and unfairly written magazine I have seen that does not claim to be communist.But beyond its completely intolerably inaccurate reporting, there is a malicious bent that seems intent on politically bashing everything that comes its way which is not socialist in nature. There are many examples of the ill-informed and not-so-thought-out liberally biased opinion which is (and will continue to be)subject to change depending on who is currently in office.As a matter of fact, I would venture to say that the editors of A-Monthly probably harbor anti-American sentiments, judging by their magazine.

    If you want to get good coverage of world events, with real analysis and hard facts, read the Economist.As an intelligence analyst, I would probably get fired for showing a fraction of the personal, unbased and unreasonable bias which the Atlantic Monthly shows.At least the Economist tastefully bashes conservatives.The Atlantic Monthly makes a mockery of analytical reporting. ...

    Editorial Review

    Literary, brainy, and left-leaning, Harper's Magazine is an American institution (the first issue was dated June 1850). Its clean, type-heavy design shouts "serious readers only": many pages are two columns of text, period, and the illustrations are mostly art (often photographic) and artistic adornments. The reading, though, is what matters. It's substantive and often sublime. Along with lengthy, thoughtful, frequently controversial articles on politics and culture, you'll find essays, short fiction, in-depth reporting, and a few book reviews. Bylines routinely represent leading writers and thinkers of the day. Standing features include the much-copied but rarely equaled "Harper's Index," in which statistics tell stories; "Readings," a section of excerpts ranging in length from a few lines to thousands of words; and "Annotation," in which a real-life document is reproduced and "explained," usually to devastating political or cultural effect. Each issue is a full meal for the mind. --Nicholas H. Allison ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Educator
    Interesting May 05 issue.When I saw the cover I sighed and with a somewhat sinking heart picked it up wondering who "now" had declared war on America.

    Oh! why it's only the Christians now.This was a great issue.I had not read one in quite awhile and forgotten how funny and sad they could be.

    The Harper's Index page is full of eyebrow lifting information.Readings was great.

    The articles on the market economy and the religious right was a jaw dropper.I had to get up and look under the table to find where mine had fallen and rolled.Most everyone knows this information in some depth and degree but . . .these articles were different. Like some other books and articles I have read they are couched with the attitude of,"Wake up, please.Throw some water on your face, look around and Wake Up, hurry before it's too late".Once you get through the large amount of heartbreaking information contained(Please tell me that America did not `sell' cornmeal that we knew was going to starving people etc., etc., etc.) you are deposited at Karbola for an account of the Sunni versus Shia and then on to Katmandu and the monarchy and Maoists.The final article is on Tango dancers and somewhat of a relief.

    After reading this you might want to go home and just pull the covers over your head.Don't.Waddle around to another section and fiind a magazine called "What is Enlightenment?"The April/May issue has a equally jaw dropping set of articles on the market economy.It's the perfect follow up to the Harper's.Harper's is a wake up call if you've slept late.WIE is the what can we roll up our sleeves and do about it.The people they interviewed are not Pollyannas.Several are quoted as saying that they really think there may be nothing left to do but totally dismantle the old system but they are willing to put that aside and focus on fixing instead of destroying and trying their hardest to make the new ideas work.

    They have some incredible contributers to the articles and to the new system they are trying to impliment.Short articles from Dadi Janki and Joseph P. Milton are included.The article about Tex Gunning - President of Unilever Bestfoods Asia and his new direction for his company is wonderful.These are people who are trying to shift the whole attitude of companies.It's not the current spate of altrustic activity that is geared more toward upping sales with profit as the end result but a real shift to business conducted with the end result as a healthy, sustainable world.The end result would benefit humanity first, the business second and the shareholders third.Novel concept eh?They make you believe that it just may work.They are however very up front about the timeline and how many people have to be shifted - quickly - in order for it to work.

    Read them both - it's worth the time and I think that they both have something very important to say.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Superb, Thoughtful Monthly Magazine!
    In the several years since my retirement, I have come to wait by my trusty old rusted metal mailbox around the third or fourth of every month, waiting for my monthly issue of two magazines, the Atlantic Monthly and Harpers. Each in iuts own way is likely the best amalgams of intellectual articles on a variety of subjects one can find in contemporary America, and each features a stable of highly regarded writers and authors. For good reason; from subjects as arcane as the supposed imminent fall of the Soviet union based on demographic and economic analysis in the mid-1980s to the recent synopsis of former spy Robert Baer regarding the evils of dealing with the highly corrupted Saudi regime, the magazine consistently offers an erudite, informative, and provocative look at aspects of contemporary reality one cannot find elsewhere.

    Needless to say, I really enjoy reading Harpers, especially under the guidance of editor Lewis lapham, and its articles often lead me on Amazon searches for tomes by the talented authors, which in the case of said author Robert Baer, or perpetually sagacious satirist P.J. O'Rourke, or a whole raft of noteable others. All of them lead to some worthwhile reading experiences indeed. It avoids the trendy, so we are spared the suffering through the latest and greatest mass experiences in favor of intellectual roads less traveled, being grassy and rather wont of wear, makes for better and more satisfying traveling, whether trudging through the snow with my Wintertime Dunham Tyroleans or padding down grassy fields in my summertime Birkenstocks. Just keep on trucking! Enjoy!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Variable
    During the 1980s and 90s Harpers decayed badly from a journal of literature and opinion into a collection of short pieces and meaningless charts- sort of a journal for the literary pretentious with a short attention span. During the late 90s and the early part of this century, an effort was made to recreate the old Harpers.

    Gone now are the annoying fragments and pointless tables, but the quality of the writing is still variable. At its best, Harpers still trails far behind The Atlantic, and at its worst it's pitifully sophmoric. I'll try it again in a few more years. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best weekly newsmagazine in the country
    I'm a liberal, and I've been a devoted reader of TNR since the 1950s.And yes it is a liberal magazine.It does excellent investigative work.And I have not noticed much of a change in its politics in the past 50 years.

    Some of the other readers have mentioned TNR's stand on Israel.This stand has been there since Martin Peretz took over the magazine in 1974.Peretz never supported the right wing in Israel, but he certainly supported Israel's right to exist.And I remember one of his early exposes of Time Magazine for its very one-sided reporting about Israel.In this respect, TNR is very different from The Nation.

    But does TNR support Democratic candidates?Usually, but not exclusively.TNR did not like Dick Nixon, of course.After Peretz took over, TNR supported Carter for President in 1976.Next, I think it backed John Anderson.Carter's foreign policy obviously started to annoy TNR.

    TNR always backed Clinton, Gore, and Kerry.And it backed Kerry even though it was a little suspicious of his attitudes about Israel.As for the war in Iraq, TNR initially took Colin Powell at his word about weapons of mass destruction and reluctantly backed the war for this reason, after which it felt cheated.

    If you want a left wing antizionist magazine, you won't want to even read this.You'll want The Nation.If you want a neoconservative magazine, you'll want to read this, but the magazine you'll really want is the Weekly Standard, or maybe Commentary.

    Anyway, I always read TNR, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Over-rated, Shadow of Former Self
    I was a subscriber to the New Republic for several years, but in the waning years of the Clinton administration and the beginnings of the Bush II administration, the paper seemed to take a real rightward turn.Now, I have no problem with so-called liberal hawks, but the magazine's slavish support for the war in Iraq in the face of questionable evidence did it for me.In addition, the magazine spends more time bashing Democrats for not aligning themselves with the magazine's professed centrist/liberal slant than it does with presenting true progressives ideals that create thoughtful discourse among its readers.The magazine has forgotten its roots of progressive intellectualism and dissent in favor of safe, "New Democrat" rhetoric.There are better magazines our there.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Contrarian Liberal Journal, with one big flaw.
    I was a loyal reader for many years, and I've always been very impressed by their insightful, deep investigations into various scandals and national political events. They _always_ knew more than the newspapers.They've been just excellent, very well-written, and I always felt like they could back up their opinions and their open and earnest political biases right to the 6th level of abstraction, so to speak.Their pursuit of the Objective Truth, whether their target has been Bush or the DNC, has earned my respect.

    The New Republic kept investigating and muckracking while over the last decade major news institutions have one by one become purveyors of infotainment and pre-digested pablum.

    My sense is that with media consolidation and various new press liability laws, news sources have become air-tight and we've been getting our news from company PR flacks and lobbyist firms with agendas.In this environment the real investigative work becomes like gold.Middle-brow types read TIME, but the writers at TIME and others who want real knowledge and context on what is happening on the ground all read the New Republic.The magazine has been vastly more influential than it's 100K+ circulation #'s would imply.

    But..The New Republic was _for_ the War in Iraq, despite their natural antipathy towards Bush, which I share.I haven't read them lately - I'm sure they're appalled at how things have gone over there.The magazine has never been a cluster of soft peaceniks usually associated with the Left, but here I feel like they've let loose their inner Hawks & given Bush the benefit of the doubt (always the _wrong_ decision)..

    So what does that make them..quasi-Neocons? Utopians? Dupes? They're often much too closely focused on Israel, and this also may have clouded their thinking ..along with Colin Powell's great song-and-dance at the U.N. last year.

    I felt I needed to try something new. Lately I've been reading the New Yorker & Reason (it's right-of-center doppelganger) & some other magazines, but I still think the New Republic is an excellent source of news and very worthwhile.Definately - you should buy an issue on the news stand & try it out. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank You, Matthew Rothschild
    Taking the reins from Erwin Knoll (R.I.P.), Mr. Rothschild has very ably continued the great work of progressive / left commentary and articles. A terrific publication. Check out www.progressive.org for timely updates on national goings-on.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Informative
    I subscribe to a few magazines, most of which are somewhat longwinded and tedious.The progressive does not follow that path.It's also a very informative magazine.For example, in one article I learned the following items about Democrat John Kerry:

    (1) He gets a good bit of money from a telecommunications industry's lobbyist "Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky, and Popeo".

    (2) "He has sponsored legislation to help telecommunications companies buy up the public airwaves."

    (3) He thinks "we should all have `smart cards' - electronic IDs with our health history encoded on them."

    (4) He "has voted for every free trade pact to come his way in the Senate since the Cold War."

    (5) AFL-CIO is backing Kerry even though he declined to answer there questionnaire on trade.

    All of these came from one article:"Triumph of the Bland" by Ruth Conniff (page 12-13 in issue April 2004).If your like informative information, check out this magazine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best magazines on the shelf
    Always feisty and dedicated to true peace and the Bill of Rights like few other periodicals, The Progressive is a consistent, independent source for information, analysis and lively, intelligent commentary.Standing outside the mainstream business owned press The Progressive routinely runs stories that are either ignored or buried by the establishment media.Labor, environmental, racial, gender, and military and corporate power issues are dealt with from the perspective of the masses of working people and societal underdogs rather than CEOs, major stockholders, Pentagon flacks and covert bigots.A relatively recent column unearthed the truth behind the sanctions and bombings of Iraq that went on throughout the 90s.Deliberately tainting the Iraqi civilian water supply was well known to Washington policymakers as The Progressive's brilliant article proved.Also it's one of the few publications in the United States to constantly berate Israel for the lawlessness and brutality it perpetrates against the Palestinians.These days that's gutsy journalism indeed.

    The Progressive garnered world wide attention and essentially became a household word in the late 70s when it refused to buckle under and courageously stood up for the sanctity of the First Amendment during the A-Bomb case.This is the exact moxie and hard hitting reporting a subsriber can expect.With a lively letters page and some hilarious columnists it's one of the best magazines around. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A magazine with guts: true reporting, no corporate agenda
    Mother Jones is what Journalism should be: gutsy, honest, no-holds barred investigative reporting.Regardless of your political party, this is one of the last vestages of honest reporting left available to us.
    Everything from world news, the envirnment, American politics and current events is researched thoroughly and reported honestly.

    A must read for people interested in more news than is available the newspaper, or in Newsweek and Time.If your tired of the pathetic blather that parades as news these days, it's time for Mother Jones.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Time magazine should be ashamed
    Like one commentor said..."The Truth Hurts". It does...If you're happy with your Martha Stewart and Scott Peterson news, do not buy this magazine. If you want the real dirt, left or right wing...this is it. They shoot from the hip.

    If you want the truth and not what you will see on the mainstream media, this is the magazine. They are well known to publish stories that the NY Times is afraid to publish. As a matter of fact, most of the writers on Mother Jones and The Nation used to write for the Times. And I just heard last week two stories written by NY Times writers that they're publishers wouldn't print. So guess who did? If you doubt me, look up the 25 Most Censored Stories of 2004 and 2005.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quite the Mother!
    I just got the first issue in the subscription I sent for about a month ago.They were quick to send me my first issue.

    I had never heard of the magazine until they sent me a flyer highlighting what the publication was all about.I was intrigued the minute I opened the flyer, so I subscribed....blindly, I might add.The cost is right [$10] so I figured: *what the heck*!

    To me this is an interesting publication.Yes, it is journalism but it is refreshing and gets away from mainstream, *politically correct* gibberish.It takes a behind the scenes look, but doesn't go along with the *beat it into the ground* mentality that I get so sick of.I think it is honest and unbiased and almost reminds me of NPR [National Public Radio] reporting.You'll find a little of everything here.

    For instance, one of the articles in the issue I just received is another look at *The American Taliban* and his family, etc.I was amazed since we never heard anything more about the guy after they caught him.Very interesting article!

    They also had a story about a group of middle-aged Israeli women who monitor the actions of the soldiers in the West Bank...fascinating, humanistic story.

    I was completely intrigued by the story of William Zantzinger and Hattie Carroll and the song that Bob Dylan wrote about them back in 1963.Zantzinger, a white farmer, murdered Carroll, a black maid....and only served 6 months.He still lives in the same area.Wonderful story!!!Of course I ran to play the Dylan song afterward.

    All in all, the magazine is one I will look forward to every issue.A really pleasant surprise and a reminder to me that *you learn something new every day* is a motto to live by.I'll be subscribing for a long time. ... Read more

    Mr. Hayek apparently despises free thought.Furthermore, his ignorance of libertarian philosophy is clear; discounting his opinion is appropriate.I'm guessing he is a Republicrat and finds the socialist ideas found in the corrupt two party system satisfying.Funny considering his namesake, Frederich Hayek, is one of the greatest libertarian thinkers of all time and one of my personal heros.

    But, I digress:Reason magazine has been in my mailbox every month for well over 20 years and I would buy a lifetime subscription if I could.Not every issue is a five star issue, but on the whole Reason is the most interesting periodical on the market.That said, Reason has dropped a notch in quality ever since the brilliant Virginia Postrel left the editor's post several years ago.She is a true intellectual and kept Reason at a consistently high level.I still love to read my issue every month and while I don't always agree with the positions I am always stimulated.

    1-0 out of 5 stars An anti-american liberal elite publication
    The people who publish this magazine should be in jail.The
    elite liberals behind this magazine have admitted to publishing
    false stories about our troops in cuba doing bad things to
    arab books.The editors (to the top) need
    to go in the same way that all the people at CBS had to go when
    they published false stories about our president and tried to
    throw the election to the liberals.

    The important mission of bringing freedom and american values
    to afghanistan is one we cannot allow anti-american liberal
    publications to sabotage.Authors like David Horowitz have
    explained how liberals are the silent footsoldiers of terror
    in partnership with the terrorists (see his book: unholy
    allance: radical islam and the american left).The connections
    between the liberal elite media and the american left are
    already well known.

    The only good thing to come out of all this is that afghanistan
    showed how far they have come in learning freedom.The
    terrorists attempted to take over the government and they were
    stopped in their tracks by Afghans who love their country and
    love freedom.

    This needs to be investigated by congress and the justice
    department.Our leaders need to dig into the connections
    between the elite media, liberal front organizations and
    the terrorists in afghanistan.The propoganda in newsweek
    and the attempt to overthrow freedom in Afghanistan were far
    too well coordinated to be coincidence.

    Freedom of the press is exatly that:freedom.Our constitution
    and founding fathers never intended for freedom to turn into
    a government-backed right to lie in a magazine about US troops
    and to give aid to the enemies of freedom in afghanistan.Our

    If Fareed Zakaria, Eleanor Cliff, Conventional Wisdom Watch, and their noticeable and disturbing slant on "news" isn't enough reason to reconsider your subscription, how about their "reporting" on the Koran flushing?How about Newsweek flushing; makes me feel better! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbiased and informative
    After reading many political and non political magazines, I have only one thing to say: U.S.News & World Report is far the best and most objective out there. I love their style and unbiased approach to subjects.
    I would recommend it to everybody.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ALL THE NEWS THAT'S FIT TO PRINT...
    Of the three major, weekly news magazines, Time, Newsweek, and U. S. News and World Report, this is probably the best of the three in terms of its news reportage. It gives fairly balanced, objective reporting of the news, and its uncluttered format makes it easy to read. Its articles are often accompanied by first rate photographs and illustrations.

    Glossy and well designed, U.S. News and World Report is a weekly news magazine that gives a succinct summary of all national and international events. It gives about as much in depth coverage as one may expect of a weekly magazine and contains informative, well written articles. I also find its articles to be less slanted politically than those found in Time or Newsweek, its prime competitors.

    All in all, it is a value packed, first rate news magazine, and, as a subscriber, I look forward to receiving it each and every week.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Convenient
    The Washington Post is an excellent newspaper and this condensed weekly edition essentially allows one to read the highlights and the best or most important of the week's news.This is especially handy for people who do not live in the DC area who want access to one of the nation's most well respected papers without having to wade through the daily edition.I frequently travel so I often pick up a copy if I'm out of town for a week to catch up on the news.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent analysis
    I read this religiously.It puts other celebrity-centered newsweeklies like Newsweek and Time to shame. In depth articles of events and good feature stories.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Worst
    Unless you are running for political office, why would you read this rag. Totally washington-centric, with a token smattering of national and international news. The New York Times is much better, as, for that matter, is USA Today. ... Read more
