Since its inception in 1945, Commentary has been America’s premier monthly magazine of opinion and a pivotal voice in American intellectual life. Many of COMMENTARY’s articles have been hugely influential, touchstones for discussion in universities, among policy analysts in and out of government, within the ranks of professionals and community activists of all kinds, and in circles of serious thought worldwide. A large number can be counted as landmarks of American letters and intellectual life. To read Commentary is to take part in the great American discussion.

Commentary subscribers are renowned for their affluence and influence. Highly educated and cultured, they are a unique demographic group that constitutes an elite with an extraordinarily well-positioned profile. Called “America’s most consequential journal of ideas” by the Washington Post, with a readership that ranges from presidents of the United States (both Republican and Democrat) to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, from religious leaders to deans of universities. Together, the magazine and the website have engaged several large, interrelated questions: the fate of democracy and of democratic ideas in a world threatened by totalitarian ideologies; the state of American and Western security; the future of the Jews, Judaism, and Jewish culture in Israel, the United States, and around the world; and the preservation of high culture in an age of political correctness and the collapse of critical standards.
