INFORMED CITIZENS ARE THE GUARDIAN AND SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY

– President Dwight D. Eisenhower

For more than a century, our magazines have spoken out on domestic and international matters — sometimes from a highly individualistic view; often with broad vision. It is inevitable that none of us will always agree with, or like, all that magazines have to say.

But over the years, magazines have provided new ideas, brought fresh insight into old problems, shed light on new ones, and have served to inspire and advance our understanding and knowledge on many subjects — from the arts to finance, from government to science, from the individual to the world scene.

Our magazines are a leading force for moral and cultural growth in our country, and one of our surest guarantees of an informed public.
