If you've already motored through the July/August issue of FP, head over to DemocracyJournal.org. It is the home of a new quarterly journal of ideas that aims to do for progressivism what The Public Interest did for conservatism. It's edited by an impressive cast of thinkers, including my good friend Clay Risen. The first issue has lots of interesting stuff, including Alan Wolfe on Madeleine Albright's new book on religion and politics, a piece by Jedediah Purdy on "The New Biopolitics", and a thoughtful take on Americans' ambivalence about the meaning of 9/11. I'll happily concur with David Broder's judgment that it is a welcome addition to the ranks.
