|a journal of||thought|
From its inception, New Politics has sought to provide "a forum permitting and encouraging a free play of discussion, controversy and counterposition of ideas." As the editors wrote in the very first issue, in 1961, "our journal is sponsored by socialists and radicals of widely differing opinions, and will be run editorially on this basis. Thus, heterogeneity of opinion in its pages will be sought after. However, the sole criterion of editorial selection will be neither conformity nor heterogeneity, but rather the ability of articles to stimulate thought and debate, and to contribute in some way to thinking out acute questions of politics and theory."
More than forty years later, this nicely captures our editorial mandate. We are committed to publishing a smart, provocative, and principled journal of leftist analysis and debate. We are on the lookout for well written, stimulating articles, reviews, and essays on topics of compelling interest to a broad, leftwing audience. We are particularly interested in material that addresses our core concerns of labor, race, social movements, intellectual history, and foreign policy. We are interested in strengthing our coverage of the arts and culture.
New Politics is glad to consider articles for publication. Please send submissions as Word or WordPerfect attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Alternatively, you may paste your submission directly into an email message, but then we will also need a hard copy to verify formatting; please send the hard copy to: New Politics, 155 West 72nd St., Room 402, New York, NY 10023 USA.)
Please keep footnotes and/or endnotes to an absolute minumum.
