Established for forty years as a key journal of the international Left, NLR has been transformed since 2000 into a new resource for the new century. Its range covers world politics and the global economy; state powers and protest movements; contemporary social theory; history and philosophy; cinema and literature; heterodox art and aesthetics. It stands resolutely opposed to Third Way pieties and neoliberal prescriptions, combating capital's current apologists with sharp and scholarly analysis, internationalist critique, polemic and experiential prose. A 'Brief History of New Left Review' covers the development of the journal's first forty years. The new series was launched with a major editorial statement, 'Renewals' by Perry Anderson. Published every two months from London, the 160-page journal carries articles, interviews, topical comments and book reviews. Read all over the world, NLR is flanked by editions in Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil) and Turkish; more are planned. A complete index of the Review, going back to 1960, can be searched by author, title or subject. Two or three articles from each issue of the new series are available free, and subscribers to the print edition gain complimentary access to the full online archive.

To produce uninterruptedly, every two to three months, a socialist theoretical journal with a consistently high standard of analysis and commentary from 1960 to the present is no small achievement. Only two journals in Britain fit the description: International Socialism and New Left Review (NLR).
Though in some sense rivals, the two journals have been complementary, and on occasio...
