    5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful magazine for Civil War buffs!
    I've been a faithful subscriber to "America's Civil War" since 1993, and I'd say that it's easily one of the best history-related magazines in existence. I read each issue cover-to-cover, even the letters to the editor. Long after I first started studying the Civil War almost 15 years ago, I'm still learning a lot from this and other magazines like "Civil War Times Illustrated" (which is also great). In each issue of "America's Civil War" you can find a variety of articles in the following categories: personality (which focuses on a specific soldier of officer), eyewitness to war (great first-hand accounts from both soldiers and civilians), men and materiel (weapons and equipment), reviews, commands (focuses on individual units), preservation (of artifacts and historic sites), and of course several articles which can cover a wide range of topics, from battles and leaders to politics and slavery. Although I wish more would be written about the neglected Western Theater, I feel that the articles cover most aspects of the war very well. I love the artwork and outstanding maps that accompany the articles. And, "America's Civil War" is all about pleasing the readers. Back in 1997 I mailed in a questionnaire from "America's Civil War" after writing that my favorite issue had a great article on the famous Irish Brigade. A few months later a new article on the Irish Brigade (by the very same author) appeared in their magazine and I was very impressed by this. Bottom line: if you are a Civil War buff this magazine is just what you need!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Magazine is interesting, the subscription was bogus.
    I found the magazine to have interesting stories and history.The part I didn't care for was the way in which my subscription was sent.I received all of my years worth of issues in about three months.They sent me several back issues which was a little annoying.

    4-0 out of 5 stars More history than you can shake a bayonet at
    If you are a civil war buff this mag is for you.

    Many details on many little known facts all easy to read and a pleasure for the eyes.It manages not only to avoid repeating the same stories over and over, but it brings you fresh perspectives that the avgerage history doesn't hit.

    A great reference tool for the student who wants to know more than the avg text will tell him. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Published by New York's treasured American Museum of Natural History, Natural History gives a monthly peek into current goings-on in the broad realm of natural history and science. Dinosaur buffs, world travelers, animal lovers, stargazers, birders, and history fanatics alike will find articles and photographs to pique their interests. Less weighty than its chief peer, National Geographic, Natural History takes the armchair traveler into the world of bugs, archeological excavations, and the rest of the universe. Without ever reading like a specialized journal, the magazine creates an intelligent and in-depth discussion of each topic, and articles are illustrated with photographs, drawings, charts, and maps. Perhaps because National Geographic covers so much cultural and physical ground, Natural History features more focused articles on scientific discovery. Still, it's a glimpse into a vast world, and a good substitute for a monthly visit to the Museum of Natural History. --Gilia Angell ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finest Popular Magazine on Natural History
    "Natural History" is the official popular journal published by the American Museum of Natural History, the oldest - and largest - museum of natural history in the Western Hemisphere and without question, one of the world's greatest museums. In its pages it has featured brilliant essays by the likes of Roy Chapman Andrews, Margaret Mead, and Stephen Jay Gould, to name but a few of the many eminent scientists - both museum staff and outsiders - who have contributed superb articles on natural history to this magazine. It has retained an emphasis on scientific discovery, publishing articles pertaining to ecology and other aspects of evolutionary biology (including paleobiology), geology, astrophysics, archaeology and anthropology. Recent issues have included brief articles on biomechanics of various living organisms, those pertaining to recent and current exhibitions such as the Petra exhibition on display at the museum from the Fall of 2003 to early Summer 2004, and current ecological and anthropological research. Current museum scientists, most notably Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, often report in these pages on their ongoing research as well as on issues of a more general nature that might interest a scientifically-literate public. And to its credit, it has not shied away from controversy, publishing for example, an issue on so-called "Intelligent Design", which is seen by its adherents as a competing scientific alternative to evolution via Natural Selection, but lacks any scientific credibility from professional scientists, science educators and like-minded members of the general public.

    This is an outstanding journal.The articles are diverse, informative, and current.Other than possibly Scientific American, there is not better journal for the life sciences.

    An earlier reviewer critized the journal for not using the metric system.Personally, I do not find this to be a problem with a journal which is primarly qualitative and not quantitative. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars America, Past and Present
    American Heritage is a fine magazine brought to us by the same publishers who bring us Forbes Magazine. It is a magazine that examines history in all shapes and forms, examining past events and cultural changes that have shaped the American nation.

    One thing about this magazine that you will notice right away is that it is not just a magazine about American political history or the type of history that you remember from your school days. It does talk about this type of history, but it also includes stories about music, art, and other topics, breaking them apart and explaining how and why things happened the way they did and how they compare to the present. It also points out facts from the past that are more obscure, making for some very stimulating reading.

    Current events are also covered in this magazine, and in these instances, American Heritage discusses present- day phenomena from an intellectual and critical standpoint, often comparing it to similar events in the American past. This helps to keep the magazine current and more in- tune with important issues of the day.

    History buffs will love this magazine, and so will those of an intellectual persuasion. The articles here are more thoughtful than other magazines and many of them require greater concentration. For these reasons, American Heritage is not really a casual reading type of publication. It is intended for those who like to read, think, discuss, and debate. It's one of my favorite magazines of its kind on the market today.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!What a read!
    I am "historically impaired".I enjoy hearing "stories" from our past but I can never remember who did what, when.Therefore I don't usually make time for history.Enter "American Heritage" magazine.It is not a tired old rag about the Revolutionary War or who was the best Civil War general.No, it is a magazine full of lively articles on UNUSUAL facts from our history.Get this magazine and get the scoop on the flu that killed a million, the fascinating story of a secret mountain masacre or the plan to play God by cleansing the "feeble minded".Who knew!!Subscribe and be riveted!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Magazine on the Rack
    When I was little, my dad always said good things about this magazine.My attitude was always "I'm not gonna buy a magazine to bore myself some more" - I mean, c'mon, it's a history magazine.I was absolutely wrong.I picked up this magazine one day and I was hooked.I would say that American Heritage has found its way to make history interesting.One way that it does this is to somehow weave issues of current interest (as subtle as they may be) into its articles.On the second thought, I should have listened to my dad from the beginning - he's an anesthesiologist - he knows what put people to sleep and what does not.This magazine keeps me awake - sometimes I would put my paper/project aside just so that I could finish my copy in one sitting.It's unfortunate that this magazine only comes out every two months.American Heritage makes history grrreattt! ... even for a non-history buff in his early 20's like myself. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars superfantastic
    I've been getting this magazine since it first came out years ago, and every issue is just as exciting as the first. It not only gives you the military aspect of events, but often goes into detail as to how and why these events occured, which is invaluable in itself. I can't wait for the next issue to come out, and wish it would come out more often. And the fact that it comes in hardcover format makes a nice presentation on my bookshelf. Thank you MHQ

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wide-ranging, thorough study of military history
    MHQ is perhaps the most in-depth publication of military history that is regularly available.The range of subjects span from ancient history and the battles of the Greeks, Romans, Chinese and others, to what has happened in the last 15 years/ Desert Storm.

    Most of the authors are very experienced, and the names of most of them can be found in your favorite bookstore's History section.Maps and photos help illustrate everything, and the magazine itself holds up a lot better with time than most thin-papered pages.It is surprisingly durable.

    I have used this magazine many times in preapring material for my history classes, and while it can by dry in some points, and certain topics aren't always in my interest area, its scholarly and informative efforts make it a far better than average magazine in its scope and quality.In short, its biggest drawback may be its quarterly issuance, since it seems to not come out often enough.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is an excellent source of information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easily the best political magazine in the country
    In addition to The American Enterprise, I have subscribed in recent years to National Review, Weekly Standard, and Commentary. I find The American Enterprise easily the most impressive and enjoyable of the four. Many of their issues are simply tremendous.

    There is something morbid and negative in many conservative magazines and books these days, but TAE is not one of them. There is great optimism, and balance, and historical wisdom in each issue. The angles are fresh and unhackneyed; I regularly read facts and arguments I have never, ever heard anywhere else. And I read a lot.

    Best of all, the writing (and illustration) is beautiful. I have come to anticipate each issue, knowing that it will bring a feast for the mind. And a feast which is as refreshing in presentation as it is nourishing in content.

    Looking back at this review, I'm kind of embarrassed at how I've gushed, but that's honestly how I feel about this publication. I've got to say I've never seen anything like The American Enterprise anywhere else. It is enormously smart and enjoyable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Politics, Business and Culture - Factually Correct vs PC
    Consistently, The American Enterprise Institute takes the lead in providing reasoned, researched and beautifully written opinion-forming commentary. In September 2002, The American Enterprise Magazine excoriated the fable of Campus Diversity with an eye opening analysis of the lopsided political leanings of university faculty.The result was a public debate in the editorial and letters pages of major "daily's" across the country. In December, the Continental Drift with Old Europe was profiled, spelling out the script subsequently followed by Chirac and Schroeder.2003 has provided a wonderful issue on the Civil War just in time for the release of Gods and Generals.George W. Bush selected the American Enterprise Institute to unveil his long term strategy for the Middle East, and once you become a reader of the magazine, you will know why.American Enterprise fellows include Lynne Cheney, Robert Bork, Dinesh D'Sousa, Christina Hoff Sommers, Jeanne Kirkpatrick and others.

    This is simply the best of the lot! ... Read more

    You Should Dig This


    I've subscribed to this since I first read it.The first issue I saw was number two I think.Like many other issues since, that one was devoted for the most part to a single topic -- in that case the Etruscans -- and was rivetting.I hardly noticed I was on the beach sucking up UV and ice water.This is easily my favorite magazine, and certainly is my all-time favorite magazine about archaeology and history.It blew _Discovering Archaeology_ off the map, despite better distribution for its competitor.

    A focus on Bible related archaeology seems to be a problem for some narrow-minded folks when they see BAR._Archaeology Odyssey_ is published by BAR, but isn't "Biblical".... ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Written, Fun to read
    This magazine is GREAT.It covers the things you may know in history, but also tells the 'whole story'.The stories cover from 1492 to Post WWII.This magazine is the only one I have found that tells the full whole history in a easy to read interesting format.I would reccomend it for all Americans who want to know the true interesting history of America and not the shallow 3 minute news driven or HollyWood slanted history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Look Forward to Every Issue
    This is an excellent magazine about American History.The magazine provides a wide range of stories on a bi-monthly basis.It doesn't repeat the same stories that most people know but it tries to tell instances that are not as well-known.In some cases it is little known stories about significant events and other times they have stories about little known pieces of American History.I only wish the magazine had a monthly publication. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The most fulfilling magazine to read cover to cover
    Even if you can only afford the time to read a sporadic issue here or there, this is by far the most gratifying magazine to read.

    This is more like an encyclopedia of current events affecting out world than a magazine.The gamut of topics is amazing and can in one article cover a topic with comprehensive, excellent writing.The consistency of quality makes it a number once choice.

    It continues to carry the most intriguing articles I have ever read.If you're thinking about a subscription- pick one up at a newstand and revel in the pages of information.Chances are good you'll be so impressed you won't hesitate to indulge in a subscription to satisfy your appetite for more.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Look forward to every issue
    I started receiving Smithsonian magazine a few months ago.It was the best choice I could have made in selecting a magazine.I find myself reading the articles out loud to my husband.I want to read every article because I am afraid I am going to miss something.I am saving them so my young son can enjoy them when he is older.

    5-0 out of 5 stars We are impressed with every issue
    Every issue we get, we say the same thing: "WOW! This is the best issue ever!! Just look at this article, and this one...."

    We took a visit to the Smithsonian in Washington, hosting some guests from Germany who had the treasures of the mineral exhibit on their "must see first time to the US" list of attractions. We were a bit nonplussed by this--we didn't know that foreigners would be interested in the Smithsonian Museum. We spent an entire day, seeing just a small percentage of thenational treasures in this montsrous museum complex. While we were shopping in one of the gift shops, we were offered a membership. We signed up to support the Smithsonian and to get this magazine.

    Recently, there was an article on Cambodia's huge temple complex Ankhor Wat (filmed in "Lara Croft"), an article on sled dogs and an article onthe Kansas-Nebraska Act, a key law that added to the tinder sparking the Civil War. And best of all, an article on Diane Arbus, the photographer who was famous for her portraits of seemingly ordinary people, somehow caught with an eye to freakishness or evil. Though I've been familiar with Arbus' work for year, this article had so much new information.

    If you like magazines about nature, culture and history, this is the one to get. We get excited by every issue. ... 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 My favorite subscription
    My parents subscribed me to this magazine when I was 12. When I write this review I am now 19, and I am proud to say I am still a subscriber.

    With each issue, Military History provides different articles on different time periods and events. It's not really based on any one war or time frame (which is refreshing considering that some historical sources are biased towards one area, such as the History Channel and WWII). I can't guarantee every article you read will be good (they are written by different contributers, after all) but those poor examples are only a minority compared to the others. They are on the whole very well detailed with maps and photos concerning each subject, and includes sources/references at the end.

    The minor articles (Personality, Editor's Note, etc) are interesting too. Granted, I usually read them last, but as short anecdotes they are truly a joy to read - and some times will teach you facts you would have never guessed!

    This is a great magazine for the armchair general or military history buff alike. It's also very affordable and comes out every month. That's a definite plus - you'll finish each issue quicker than they come!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for the history enthusiast
    I have only recieved a few issues of Military History, but I have been extrodinarily pleased.There is a very diverse selection of articles, so I am always learning something new.Topics range from specific individuals to whole forces, from book reviews to technichal equipment information.I have found that the writers generally assume that the reader has some advance knowledge of the subject, so this may not the best magazine for someone new to military history.Still, this magazine is well worth the money for anyone who truly has an interest in military history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful publication for military history buffs
    I regularly look forward to my copy of Military History.It is a quality publication that is crammed with interesting articles about warfare in the past.I have found very few errors in the magazine and it is very professionally presented.The photos and diagrams are very well done and the magazine always has a interesting mix of articles from different time periods.Highly recommended to those interested in the subject. ...
