Published by Hoover Institution
Policy Review is the preeminent publication for new and serious thinking and writing about the issues of our day.

This journal became a publication of the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, beginning with Issue 107 in 2001. Tod Lindberg, who in 1999 became editor of Policy Review, continues in that capacity, and has also been appointed research fellow at Hoover. The journal will continue to be based in Washington, D.C. — expanding the Hoover Institution’s presence in the nation’s capital.

Policy Review and the Hoover Institution are well matched. They share a commitment to free and rigorous inquiry into the American condition, into the workings of government and of our political and economic systems and those of others, and into the role of the United States in the world. They both bring together scholars with an interest in current affairs and journalists interested in exploring our world in greater depth. They both take up topics not as exercises in theory, but for the purpose of better understanding the world and the betterment of people’s lives. They both are committed to civil discourse, the airing of reasoned disagreement, and a vigorous and open debate. They both are diligently independent, not least in affirming and guarding the independence of those associated with them in the community of informed discussion.

As the Hoover Institution has been a premier home for serious scholars, so Policy Review has been a premier vehicle for serious writers and thinkers. As an editorially independent publication of the Hoover Institution, Policy Review will both draw on the intellectual resources of the institution and bring new people into contact with it, exponentially expanding serious dialogue about politics and policy.

the hoover institution
was established at StanfordUniversity in 1919 by Herbert Hoover, a member of Stanford’spioneer graduating class of 1895 and the thirty-first president of the United States. Since 1919 the Institution has evolved from alibrary and repository of documents to an active public policyresearch center. Simultaneously, the Institution has evolved into aninternationally recognized library and archives housing tens of millions of books and documents relating to political, economic,and social change.The Hoover Institution’s overarching purposes are:To collect the requisite sources of knowledge pertaining toeconomic, political, and social changes in societies at homeand abroad, as well as to understand their causes and conse-quencesTo analyze the effects of government actions relating to pub-lic policyTo generate, publish, and disseminate ideas that encouragepositive policy formation using reasoned arguments andintellectual rigor, converting conceptual insights into practicalinitiatives judged to be beneficial to societyTo convey to the public, the media, lawmakers, and othersan understanding of important public policy issues and topromote vigorous dialogueIdeas have consequences, and a free flow of competing ideas leadsto an evolution of policy adoptions and associated consequencesaffecting the well-being of a free society. The Hoover Institutionendeavors to be a prominent contributor of ideas having positiveconsequences.In the words of President Hoover:
This Institution supports the Constitution of the United States, its Bill of Rights, and its method of representative government. Both our social and economic systems are based on private enterprise from which springs initiative and ingenuity. . . . The Federal Government should undertake no governmental, social or economic action, except where local  government, or the people, cannot undertake it forthemselves. . . . The overall mission of this Institution is . . .to recall the voice of experience against the making of war,and . . . to recall man’s endeavors to make and preserve peace, and to sustain for America the safeguards of theAmerican way of life. . . . The Institution itself must constantly and dynamically point the road to peace, to personal freedom, and to the safeguards of the Americansystem.
