Product Description


The New Statesman (est. 1913) is Britain's leading and best written political, cultural and current affairs magazine. It is elegant, stylish and published weekly. The magazine's award-winning team of editors and writers seek only to engage its readers with great writing, clever insights and trenchant argument, not pander to fashion nor stoop to please the crowd. Its mission is to provide its influential readership with a rigorous and intelligent examination of our political culture as well as to amuse and entertain. Reading the New Statesman puts you right at the heart of the debate; our contributors are worldly, thoughtful, curious and demanding and the best in their fields. Their wit, humour and good judgment mean that the New Statesman is that rare thing - a really good read. A treat, not to be missed.

The Kindle Edition of New Statesman contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include letters and competition pages or images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand.

An excellent read on the kindle (which seems particularly well suited to periodicals). I actually enjoy this more on Kindle than on paper, the presentation is good and article selection astute. It makes me chuckle often. Occasionally it informs me too. Between this and The Spectator all bases are covered.

I've been very impressed by my subscription to the 'New Statesman' and how it is presented on the Kindle. The writing is insightful and gives an interesting take on the news and the formatting makes it an easy read. I don't know if it would be a replacement for a paper copy but it's definitely worth giving it a go through the free trial.

Since purchasing my Kindle (latest version) I've dabbled with some newspaper trials but always felt that I was getting a substantially poorer experience at a fractionally cheaper price. I've been reading the New Statesmen for a few months now and I have been much happier with the format and the amount of content provided. The price is also very reasonable in comparison to the print edition. The tone of the magazine is left of centre and occasionally a bit too far left for my tastes, but the free trial will allow readers to decide if this is palatable to their own political sensibilities. Like most Kindle journals, a few more images would perhaps brighten things up but otherwise this is a good choice for a weekly commentary on UK current affairs.

I have just taken out a subscription after buying a one off last weekend when I also bought the Times as a one off. Newspapers just dont work, sorry guys, but they just don't.
However the NS as a magazine is good on paper but somehow better on the kindle... I prefer the kindle version to the paper one. The way it reads and is laid out is excellent, the standard of articles is good and the review section, I especially enjoyed. Ok its left of centre but even for those who are not, it is insightful, articulate and well presented.

A good mixture of serious and humour and in depth intelligent articles and reviews. Top Marks, whether left or right give it a try, it knocks the papers for six.

NS is an excellent hard copy magazine. Although extremely cheap, the Kindle version really is not worth bothering with, however. As others have noted, navigation is nearly impossible. The contents seem to be 'organised' in an almost random manner, so that a regular writer will be in one section one week, another the next. Indeed, the section names themselves change every couple of weeks. Author's names do not appear in the contents list. Your only choice is to click through everything.

Most importantly though, important content from the news-stand version is omitted. In recent months this has included two cover stories - that of Robert Skidelsky on economics and in the current issue (2.5.14), the piece on Islaam. I've struggled with the Kindle version of NS for over a year. I'd gladly pay more for a decent product, but I'm fed up with this. Such a shame.

Always enjoyed reading NS, be it print, on a tablet or on the Kindle. Articles themselves are laid out well on the Kindle Edition and you do get pretty much the same as the print version, minus pesky ads of course. However, the way the sections are laid out is pretty poor. Everything is mostly bundled into the "New Statesman" section which puts Culture, Back Pages, Columnists, the NS Essay and more into one big pot of 30 - 40 or so pieces. Navigating isn't a nightmare, but much harder than it needs to be, especially with touch and better performance of the Paperwhite models.

UPDATE: Below I said I had emailed NS and I got a response from Helen Lewis herself. Apparently, NS has been asking for access to developer tools to make the experience better on the Kindle and they still haven't gotten them. If you want to point the finger at anyone for this, point it at Amazon. Sad, really as Amazon are happy to promote this great read on the Newsstand but holds it back from being as enjoyable as it could be. Hopefully, the Kindle edition gets better and better.

I have emailed NS about this for feedback and hopefully they'll make the layout and menu system much more featured going forward. The content here is excellent as it always has been (if you're not a fan of their centre-leftish outlook you're better looking elsewhere) and it's just the menu that needs touching up.

I subscribed to NS on my Kindle as it has a larger screen than my phone. I am very disappointed as more than half thhe topics are not available, the comments are unavailable and the number of articles in each topic is quite low.
I had thought I was subscribing to the online version of NS but sadly it is back to my mobile to view online.

First off I would like to say that the New Statesman on Kindle is brilliant, all of the great articles and none of the visual clutter. I moved over to reading it this way a little over a month ago and I won't be going back to buying the physical magazine again. My one complaint is that the sections such as Critic's reviews and Column's tend to get bundled up together with no clear separation. If this could get sorted it would make the reading experience that much easier. I tend to prefer to skip over Critic's reviews only going back to them once I've read the rest of the magazine, and then only to reviews that particularly take my fancy.
