American Affairs is a quarterly journal of public policy and political thought. It was founded to provide a forum for people who believe that the conventional partisan platforms are no longer relevant to the most pressing challenges facing our country.

The obsolescent ideologies and expectations of previous decades are constraining our political discourse. The hyper-partisan posturing of our politics masks an underlying conformity and complacency in our intellectual life. American Affairs, by contrast, seeks to advance a more ambitious discussion of the fundamental issues and divides of our time.

Each issue of American Affairs will explore topics in domestic and foreign policy, as well as broader debates in economic theory, political thought, and social criticism. We will feature established authors and new voices, from both the Right and the Left. Above all, contributors to this enterprise share a willingness to look beyond ossified ideological modes and a desire to offer more informed responses to perennial questions and immediate problems.
