Winter Reading

With a new year upon us and a new Congress about to begin, the new winter issue of National Affairs is now online.


It offers some essays geared especially to the 112th Congress—including James Capretta on how Republicans should approach our budget challenges, Henry Olsen on what the aftermaths of past wave elections might teach us, and Joel Alicea on how a Congress committed to taking the Constitution seriously should actually interpret the document.


And it has lots more besides—including John Hood on the grave crisis of the states, Julie Gunlock on parenting and the anti-obesity crusade, Jeffrey Miron on redistribution, Ralph Lerner on Lincoln and the Founders, and much more.


Some are free for all on our site, some are available only to subscribers—and here is where you can subscribe.

Yuval Levin is the director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute and the editor of National Affairs.
