    Current History enjoys a unique place among America's most distinguished periodicals.The oldest US publication devoted exclusively to world affairs, Current History was founded by The New York Times in 1914 to provide detailed coverage of what was then known as the Great War.

    As a privately owned publication, Current History has continued a long tradition of groundbreaking coverage, providing a forum for leading scholars and specialists to analyze events and trends in every region of a rapidly changing world.

    Past contributors to Current History have included writers such as George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill, Charles Beard, and Henry Steele Commager. In recent years, the magazine's roster of authors has featured names like James Schlesinger, Condoleezza Rice, Francis Fukuyama, Michael McFaul, David Shambaugh, Selig Harrison, Joshua Muravchik, John McCain, Anatol Lieven, Jessica Stern, and Shibley Telhami.

    Current History publishes nine times per year. Each month's issue focuses on a single region or topic--including annual issues on China and East Asia, Russia and Eurasia, the Middle East, Latin America, South and Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa.

    In addition, Current History publishes special issues on topical themes, such as "The Rise of Asia" and "Women in the World." Every December is devoted to an annual overview of global trends. (Click here to see, at no charge, the most recent "Global Progress Report.") Regular monthly features include customized maps, and, only in Current History, The Month in Review, a chronological roundup, nation by nation, of major international events.

    Current History's only obligation is to its readers. It has no affiliation with any institution, political organization, or government body. As such, it retains an independence and objectivity that few other journals can share.
