The New Republic is an American politics and culture magazine that appears every fortnight. It's not a publication I've seen for sale in British shops, that I can remember, which is a darn shame as it's truly an excellent read.

I subscribed when I got my Kindle and after a number of issues I'm continually pleased and surprised by it. Each issue is made up of several sections. First there are some major features on current issues in US politics. Then there are some shorter political bits, followed by an arts section with reviews of books, music, films and so on, which read something like the lengthy and informed discussions you'd get in a publication like The London Review of Books. There might be a spot of photojournalism in there somewhere, too, and sometimes there's a poem. It's all rounded off by another shot of politics. Its voice is liberal in the American sense, which sounds fairly centrist to European ears.

The journalism is longform: sometimes astonishingly so. This is a distinctively American style not nearly as common in British publications - which is frankly a shame for our homegrown writing, because the additional space allows for a great deal of research, depth and storytelling. The pieces require concentration, but are very rich. In this way, it seems to go well with the Kindle: I always find it easier to focus on articles in this format, and having TNR in my pocket to read is a very nice antidote to boredom on a long journey.

TNR also contains some really excellent writing. It is a highbrow read, and quite academic, but funny and human with it - a little like The Economist in tone, perhaps, but zestier. Obviously, the focus is first and foremost on American issues, but there's plenty else in the mix.

HASH(0x996f55a0) out of 5 stars Definitely worth the price 9 Jun. 2010
By Johnny Lawrence - Published on
I just got my Kindle last night and was delighted to find The New Republic available for the device at a significant discount. Whether you agree with the politics or not is up to you -- I generally do, but if you do not know already the magazine definitely leans left on the political spectrum but if you are considering purchasing this you should know that already. As for the actual layout (which really should form the review -- after all if you don't care for the politics what are the chances you have actually purchased a copy or tried a sample?), the Kindle really works well for The New Republic since it is largely image free in print. There are photos included in some articles though. The content itself is largely intact aside from one or two missing items, notably letters to the editor, and well laid out through the menu system, similar to how newspapers on the Kindle are laid out. All in all the subscription option for TNR on the Kindle is a strong one.

HASH(0x99d174f8) out of 5 stars Excellent Writing at Bargain Prices 25 Oct. 2010
By Stevie Dee - Published on
This magazine has writing on par with The Economist yet breaks down to about $1.12 per issue. As noted by the 1-star reviews, yes this mag does tend to have a liberal slant, but the articles are so well written and researched that you can't simply ignore them just because you disagree. Oh, and more importantly, I've had no delivery or formatting issues with this magazine on my Kindle.

Although two reviewers find this to be a "liberal rag," I find that although I do not always agree with their articles, I appreciate the well researched and documented articles. They are thought provoking and often opinion changing - if you are open to learning and change. If you are a diehard right-winger and not open to the other side's opinions, then I agree, do not waste your time. You will only be missing a balanced picture of the issues.

HASH(0x99b39618) out of 5 stars TNR is great on Kindle 25 Mar. 2011
By applenut - Published on
I have been a print subscriber for many years and reluctantly did not renew this year at $79. Too rich for my blood (and low salary.) Then I noticed it was available on the Kindle (which I use daily.) I will ignore the ignorant reviews about the magazine's "alleged slant." Most readers want to know how this periodical looks on the Kindle. In a word...excellent. TNR is very print-oriented (and the feature articles and reviews tend to be long) and this is formatted excellently on the Kindle. This is a magazine that does not have to be read immediately and in the past I would have a stack of them (much like New Yorker.) It is so efficient to have them on the space friendly Kindle. Navigation is even easier than the print edition...very intuitive. The Kindle edition arrives even sooner than the print edition. For the devoted TNR reader looking at Kindle, this is a "no brainer." All the content (except letters to the editor) are present in their entirety. Enthusiastically and highly recommended!

HASH(0x996b7f00) out of 5 stars Deserves more than three stars 7 Dec. 2010
By Iza - Published on
I was astounded to see that one of the most venerated American publications has received a measly three star average. Almost as soon as I saw this, I guessed that it must be due to readers who disagree with the viewpoints it presents. Sure enough, all negative reviews are by people who identify themselves as "right-wingers". Doubtless, we have Fox News and its imitators to thank for this new phenomenon. Or perhaps they're Internet trolls. (Really? NWO tin foil hatters? Really?) Whatever the case, to those reviewers: you judge writing upon its merits, not the opinions it expresses. This is already long for a Kindle review, so I will just add that The New Republic is one of the last bastions of real journalism left, and it is substantive reporting like this which is the only known antidote to sensational, mindless cable TV news. But by all means, if you're so intransigent that you shut out all views that don't mirror your own, don't waste your time.
