“A pillar of leftist intellectual provocation” – New York Times
Dissent is a quarterly magazine of politics and ideas. Establishing itself as one of America’s leading intellectual journals in 1954, it has since published articles by Hannah Arendt, Norman Mailer, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Ellen Willis, Richard Wright, George Packer, and many others.
A rare internationalism has always been central to Dissent’s mission. The magazine published dissident work from the Eastern Bloc and now reports on politics and social movements with a recent focus on the Middle East and China.
