The American Interest

The New York Times reported a few months ago that some of the most prestigious members of the editorial board of The National Interest had left the well-known magazine.

Now, however, a philosophical disagreement within its editorial board has put its future in turmoil. On Friday, 10 well-known board members, including the conservatives Midge Decter, Samuel P. Huntington and Francis Fukuyama, announced their resignations, saying they disagreed with the narrowly realist foreign policy of its new owner, the Nixon Center.

They departed announcing that they were going to create a new magazine, to be named The American Interest. The new publication's website has just been put online and I must say it looks very good. I am very impressed with the editorial board and I am looking forward to the first issue, which will be coming out this fall.
