The New Issue of NR Is Hot Off the Press

If you are an NRPLUS member this very moment you can be engaging the January 29, 2019 issue of National Review from cover to glorious cover. Here’s some of what you’ll be reading (or in the case of non-members, missing):

  • Douglas Murray’s cover essay, “Snowplow Politics,” about Trump, Brexit, and the divides deepening between us.
  • Jay Nordlinger’s article, “Whisked Away,” on the Turkish government and its program of kidnappings.
  • Christopher Caldwell’s book review of the new (English-translated) Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn memoir, Between Two Millstones, Book 1: Sketches of Exile, 1974–1978.
  • Ramesh Ponnuru’s article, “Money Trouble,” on Trump’s battle with the Fed.
  • Jerry Hendrix essay, “How the Air Force Lost Its Way,” about a bomber force with no bombers.

There’s plenty more (The Week, for starters) to enjoy, so do until the next fortnight brings an entirely new package of wit and wisdom.
