If you are not familiar with it, the NYRB (not to be confused with the New York TIMES Book Review) allows its writers to use recently published books as a jumping off point to discuss and explain topics in current affairs, politics, science, the arts, technology, philosophy, popular culture and other areas. The viewpoint is often somewhat liberal, but everything is carefully argued and supported. No mindless doctrine or slogans here. The authors are some of the world's most respected scholars and writers. Recent contributors include Zaidie Smith, Freeman Dyson, Michael Rosen and Tony Judt. It produced the most carefully crafted, informed, and passionate argument against the 2003 invasion of Iraq I ever read. A truly marvelous magazine.
