The Corner

The one and only.

Holiday Reading


The new winter issue of National Affairs is now online, with lots of great essays to make you think during your Christmas break. Among the offerings in this issue:

– Jim Manzi on the challenge of balancing economic dynamism and social cohesion
– Bob Stein on pro-family tax reform
– James Q. Wilson on the future of blame
– Nicole Gelinas on how to fix financial regulation
– Diana Schaub on baseball and the American character

And many more. Some are free to all on our site, some are available only to subscribers — who of course also get the journal in print, which makes for easier vacation reading. Here’s where you can subscribe (and a subscription makes a great gift, too).

While you’re at our website, you should also take a look at our regular web feature, “Findings,” which offers a daily summary of academic studies on various subjects — from the serious to the surreal to the sublime. For the social-science nerd in all of us.
