Foreign Affairs Magazine

"I've been reading Foreign Affairs to help myself understand what is going on in this complicated world. It isn't my only source. I also read the NYTimes online. The contributors have a wide range of expertise and perspectives."

Best current events publication

This publication used to be published less frequently and was called FOREIGN AFFAIRS QUARTERLY. If you want to know how our "leaders" in Washington view the world, this provides absolutely essential information. This is first-class all the way, in an entirely different realm than TIME or BUSINESS WEEK for example. The NEW YORK TIMES, HARPERS, ATLANTIC and THE WASHINGTON POST in comparison provide an agenda, containing extremely biased non-news news. FOREIGN AFFAIRS, in my opinion is the source. In practice, the articles seem geared to high level government officials--which is fine if you want your information without it being watered down.

Good, enjoyable, interesting (but highly geeky!) magazine

Very good magazine for analysis and opinions on world events and foreign policy. The magazine is at its best when it has lengthy essays written by Cabinet officials and others in powerful positions, because it is their opinions on matters that matter most. Sometimes articles by academics are invaluable too, as in when they later prove to be highly influential and prescient. One advantage over something like The Economist: it is good that FA only comes every 2 months, so you get a good chance to actually read all of the lengthy articles and essays. I think that getting The Economist once a week would likely be just too much material.

An efficient way to keep up on world affairs.

Foreign Affairs provides information and opinion on a wide variety of economic and social issues. It is well-written and accessible to most educated readers. There are many book-reviews. At low cost, readers can get a serious discussion of world economic and social affairs without having to deal with jargon.
