Current History, founded in 1914, is the oldest US publication devoted to contemporary world affairs. Authoritative but readable, the magazine publishes nine months per year (September through May).
Each issue focuses on a single region or topic, including annual issues on China and East Asia, Russia, the Middle East, Latin America, South Asia, Europe, and Africa. Special issues cover topics such as humanitarian intervention, global migrations, and the next democratic wave. And every January we assess key global trends and present our annual “Global Progress Report.”
Authors contributing to Current History include scholars such as Francis Fukuyama, Larry Diamond, Steven Pinker, Nicholas Eberstadt, Elizabeth Economy, Barry Eichengreen, Leslie Gelb, G. John Ikenberry, Charles Kupchan, Kenneth Lieberthal, Michael McFaul, Andrew Moravcsik, George Perkovich, Ahmed Rashid, and Lilia Shevtsova.
The Kindle edition includes all essays, book reviews, and chronologies of international events found in the print magazine.
Kindle Magazines are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you’re not wirelessly connected.
