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.
