As well as the History Vault trial which we announced last week, we now have trial access to three magazine archives: The Nation, National Review and The New Republic.
- The Nation is the oldest continually published weekly magazine in the United States, beginning publication in 1865, and describes itself as “the flagship of the left”.
- National Review was founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley, Jr. and is a hugely important source for any study of American conservatism over the past sixty years.
- The New Republic, founded in 1914, is widely considered important in changing the character of liberalism in the direction of governmental interventionism, both foreign and domestic.
The VHL has extensive holdings in print of all three magazines, although we have significant gaps in our run of National Review.
