About The Nation

Founded by abolitionists in 1865, The Nation magazine has long believed that independent journalism generates the capacity to bring about a more democratic and equitable world. The magazine is also the oldest continuously published magazine in the United States. 

The magazine’s journalistic routes began soon after the abolishment of slavery. Over 150 years of publishment, the magazine has continually dished out issues on the latest political, social and economic issues that surround everyday current events.


Firm believers of intellectual freedom, social/economical justice and civil liberties, The Nation Magazine makes it clear to readers that progressive philosophy is at the forefront of their messages. Political and social dissent is a cornerstone of their magazine as it generates much-needed conversations about the world we live in today.

The magazine’s writers work to shift paradigms and open minds with progressive philosophy. Their investigative reporting encourages and creates congressional hearings, forces policy change, and shapes news cycles. The Nation magazine, since its inception, has continued towards its commitment to future generations of torchbearers. The Nation provides a provocative commentary that encourages spirited debate about politics and culture. The magazine touches on topics related to civil liberties, human rights, and economic justice.
