5-0 out of 5 stars As good as Foreign Affairs, but with pictures too :)
I am a big fan of Foreign Affairs magazine to which I have subscribed for five years. I find Foreign Policy to be very interesting as well, and I find that there is not usually an overlap of information between the two - rather they seem to supplement each other. Whereas Foreign Affairs is comprised of articles contributed from a variety of sources - politicians, professors, economists, ambassadors, etc - Foreign Policy is written somewhat more like a traditional news magazine, in that it deals with current issues - but like no other. The coverage is very in-depth, more along the lines of news coverage in the Economist or Foreign Affairs. I enjoy the area studies in this magazine, as well as the format in general. I find that I pick up FP and read it very quickly - the photographs are always well-done, unusual shots, and the use of graphs and charts (often to compare ways of life in one aspect or another between countries) make FP more easy to browse. I enjoy the internet news section, and sections such as Read Between the Lines and Think Again (like a transcript of a debate session for a given argument). I also enjoy the sociological tilt that this magazine has - it differentiates itself from other political and news magazines.

5-0 out of 5 stars The above review is untrue.
Foreign Policy is not owned by the Council on Foreign Relations.
It is owned by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

5-0 out of 5 stars FP Deserves Its Excellent Reputation
FP is published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Articles in the current issue (May-June 2004) are about al Quaeda, world trade in small arms, selling to the world's four billion poor people and American public opinion on Iraq, terrorism, North Korea and free trade.There are also articles on such subjects as saving endangered species and a comparison of Kerry and Bush on foreign policy. FP is marking the second anniversary of the magazine's ambitious attempt to rank the world's 21 rich countries on "how their policies help or hinder social and economic development in poor countries." First place on this year's report card goes to the Netherlands while the United States is ranked seventh.

There are still other articles plus reviews and a lively letters section. The latter is devoted solely to reactions to an earlier article by Samuel Huntington on the impact on the United States from Hispanic immigration.

The contributors include mostly academics with a sprinkling of journalists and other professionals. Some of the recent writers are Allen J. Hammond, C.K. Prahalad, Jason Burke, Steven Kull, Kenneth Rogoff, Minxin Pei, Tamar Jacoby and Patrick Buchanan. The articles cover timely topics and they are written in a highly readable style. The reader does not necessarily have to be an academic to enjoy this publication. FP definitely deserves its reputation for excellence.

3-0 out of 5 stars Yawn. Provocative it is not.
I find Foreign Policy to be a bit too cocky, dull, and long-winded. I subscribed hoping to find stimulating intellectual discussion, but Foreign Policy can't seem to shake its centrist shackles. Its articles are less well-researched and provocative than they are lengthy, and I was less than impressed with many so-called "expert" authors who seized the opportunity to publish op-eds rather than engaging original arguments. Foreign Policy's decision to feature Samual Huntington's bunk argument regarding the Hispanic "threat" to America on the cover is a case in point.

On the other hand, Foreign Policy is not a bad read if it is considered supplemental. Just don't expect to be blown away.

2-0 out of 5 stars Foreign Policy
I visited the section on Magazines at Amazon.com -seems like they got thousands of them. Great.

But on the selections called "international" there are only 5-6?? The whole world, and only 5-6 magazines ? Nothing on Asia, even while half the world's people live there!

Besides that Economist Magazine, Latin Trade there where only 3 others offered. 2 of them where Jewish. The only one interesting to me is/was this "Foreign Policy". But that one takes a couple of months to get started and they will not even sent it outsite USA?!

Often visiting book stores in the US I find those amazingly thin to nothing, on international matters. Except for cook books. I guess on Amazone on line is no different. USA is as inward looking as ever I supose. ... Read more

I WAS SUBSCRIBED FOR A YEAR WHICH ENDED LAST MONTH, I ONLY RECEIVED 2 ISSUES, CALLED MANY TIMES TO COMPLAIN AND NO FAVORABLE ANSWER. OTHER MAGAZINES I ORDERED ARRIVED WELL. I WILL SAY WORST SERVICE, WORST CUSTOMER SATISFACTION, WORST SERVICE, AMAZON SHOULDN'T HAVE AS A PRODUCT.

2-0 out of 5 stars Vocabulary builder, but not your father's Reader's Digest
A reluctant "thumbs up"(the other one is helping to hold my nose)...

Reader's Digest used to be a rather conservative offering, but now has undergone several recent transformations, resulting in something designed to compete with "Us" or "People", as evidenced by the now-standard kiss-up softball fluff piece to this or that Hollywood celebrity, nearly all airheaded pinko lefties. This from the once staunchly anti-Soviet/anti-communist magazine.

That being said, I've reluctantly continued my subscription for 10yrs., because it is a good vocabulary builder. NOTE: have plenty of dictionaries handy! Whoever translates the article may call it what it's called in Venezuela & not Colombia. The world "regazo"("lap"[i.e., a place to sit] in Eng.) is common in the magazine, but my (Venezuelan) master's degree tutor & her PhD (Mexican) gal pal had never heard of the word! (They say "piernas"[legs] which conjures up a humorous image to the native speaker of Eng.).

Whatever. Back issues are hard to find, sadly, because these'd be a treasure. Mexico's version of eBay, perhaps.

That the articles are different is prob'ly a matter of demographics(as applies to advertising)/audience appeal/simple editorial preferences. Yes, I too thought I'd simply place the Eng. & Span. editions side-by-side & have the translations spoon fed to me, but this isn't the case.

Also, not all editions in Spanish are available to US addresses! Forget it if you want the magazine that's printed/distributed in Spain!

2-0 out of 5 stars I agree with Katty Estevez
I was also very disappointed to learn that the Spanish version of Reader's Digest does not cover the same articles as the English version. My wife' primary laguage is Spanish and I also was hoping to discuss the articles that we would read in the publication. Can anyone give us the reason for the decision by the company not to have mirror versions in English and Spanish?

3-0 out of 5 stars Selecciones - why different from Reader's Digest?
When I suscribed to Selecciones I was under the impression that it would cover the same articles as the English version of Reader's Digest. I think Reader's Digest creates a disservice to spanish readers by offering a product that does NOT produce the same well known, widely read product to English language readers. I was very disappointed that the magazines covered different topics --when trying to discuss articles from a Reader's Digest magazine with my mother, who reads only in Spanish, hence only suscribes to Selecciones. Why not offer the same well known product with the same articles that appear in Reader's Digest? Though selecciones is a good magazine, I don't see why the clear separation of topics from one magazine to another. It is misleading to suscribers who are looking to read the Reader's Digest widely distributed product, when they're actually buying an inferior product.

4-0 out of 5 stars good for building a vocabulary
This unpretentious little magazine would perhaps be good for an intermediate Spanish language student. With its wide assortment of topics, there's bound to be a few articles to hold ones interest.
The variety for the month of May '02 includes "El Pantanal BrasileƱo", about the wildlife in Brazil and which includes many photos, a piece on Sophia Loren, another on conserving ones memory as one ages with mental exercises that are supposed to help, and many more. The one that appealed to me was "La Magia Curativa de la Cocina Oriental" as I'm one of those "you are what you eat" believers.

It also has those "tidbits" like "La Risa, Remedio Infalible", and of course, the intimidating "Enriquezca su Vocabulario", which I find quite a challenge, and only occasionally have reached the lowest score of "Bueno" !

One has to remember that these articles are for the most part translations condensed from U.S. magazines, and don't have the cadence of something written originally in Spanish, but the translations are well done, and it's in that handy, easy to carry "fit in your pocket" (well, almost !) size. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Accurate and Entertaining
The Jerusalem Post is the only major English-language newspaper published daily in Israel. In recent years the Hebrew-language Haaretz has started publishing a small English edition, too, and both the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz in English are now available abroad, either weekly or (if you can find it) daily.

The Jerusalem Post was sold to new owners about ten years ago, and became at that time slightly more sensationalist in its content and more conservative in its outlook (though it remains a serious newspaper, and often publishes pieces by left-wing and Arab writers). These changes led some readers to switch to Haaretz, and prompting some Post writers to break away and found the left-of-center English-language magazine "Jerusalem Report".

I generally prefer the Jerusalem Post to these alternatives, though, as it is a professional, respected newspaper with a lot of human-interest, entertaining pieces (such as cooking and advice columns which give an interesting insight into "ordinary" Israeli life). Its North America edition, particularly, is geared to the interests and needs of Americans and Canadians, with extensive coverage of the US and Canada, and lots of pieces about Jewish and Christian communities in Israel and abroad.

If you're a scholar working on the Middle East, you'd do best to read all English-language news sources. (Or better yet, learn Hebrew!) But if you're looking for a good weekly newspaper that will educate you about Israeli politics and events as it entertains you with interesting features, then the Jerusalem Post is for you....

5-0 out of 5 stars Smart, deep, profound and truthful
This is very best example of truthful journalism. The Journalism that does not affected to by oil dollars, not medieval mentality. If someone does not like the truth that's Ok. Truth sometimes may became really harsh and unpleasant. It is really interesting reading for educated and contemporary thinking individual.
Highly recommended.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shamefully biased
Terriblely biased. Look at euro newspapers for a more balanced (or at least factual) coverage.

1-0 out of 5 stars it's unfortunate propaganda
This is an interesting read when you keep in mind it's political agenda, that is, it obviously supports Israel's aggressive military occupation of Palestine and violation of numerous laws and treaties. But it is certainly not accurate in reporting the facts. I recommend reading European newspapers for more accurate coverage of the crises in the Middle East, especially with regards to Israel. American (and Israeli) publications seem to portray Israel as an American ally and an innocent victim of terrorism. But that's simply not the case. They are guilty of extraordinary crimes that rarely get much attention or consideration in the US. Just look at how the UN regards the actions of Israel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truth
This is, hands down, the finest publication covering Israel and the Middle East today. Always thought-provoking and intriguing, it tells the true story of life in Israel, and the lives of average Israelis coping with unprecedented terrorism and militant Islamic fanaticism. Proves once again why Israel is the strongest ally of the United States and, as most Americans see, Israel is on the frontlines of the war on international Islamic terror every day. Bravo to the staff of Jerusalem Post for telling the truth. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars In Content, But 1 Star For Targeted Audience
The content of this entire magazine is absolutely wonderful. Hence, the five stars. However, in the magazine's attempt to reach an "affluent, educated audience of senior business executives, thought leaders, and policy makers," I feel that it has somehow alienated itself from the average Joe Normal who might be reached otherwise, but who never will, simply because he doesn't understand the "$10.00 words" many of the writers feel necessary to use when getting their point across. For whatever reasons, some writers feel the need to express themselves in terms completely foreign to the average reader's mind by using words that sound impressive but whose meaning often eludes the average reader. I believe in the power of the printed word. I also believe that if one is a truly gifted writer, he or she will have the ability to be able to express themselves in such a way so as to reach ALL audiences, not just a select few. After all, shouldn't that be the intent of any magazine or newspaper - to educate the public, and not just a certain element? In the past, when sitting down to read some of the magazine's articles, I've had to read whole paragraphs over at least three or four times in order to figure out what the writer could have set in one or two simple sentences. I respectfully suggest that if you are a gifted and informed writer, your gift and knowledge will shine through without the use of $10.00 words and terminology unfamiliar to the average Joe. This is a wonderful magazine. I respectfully suggest, however, that it might wish to consider targeting a larger audience for educational purposes (given so much inaccurate reporting in the news media concerning Israel), and that in order to do so, it will have to ditch many of the $10.00 words some of the writers are so bent on using.

5-0 out of 5 stars I look foward to each new issue
I find the varying views expressed in this excellent bi-weekly to be representative of a large part of the broad spectrum of political views of the interested parties in Israel and the worldwide Jewish community.

And the Jerusalem Report also makes a great gift!

2-0 out of 5 stars The Left
Both "The Jerusalem Report" & "The Jerusalem Post" are owned by the same company. One is the 'left-wing' version of the news, the other is the 'right-wing'. Why do I mention this? So you won't be fooled (as the other reviewer was) into thinking that either of these are "moderate". There is absolutely NO moderate or unbiased reporting about this from anybody - - not even "The Economist" (The Brits are the ones who... up this country to begin with; how can they be unbiased?).

You want to understand or have a balanced view of the situation from the Israeli perspective? Read both "The Jerusalem Report" & "The Jerusalem Post" and then try to come to some conclusion yourself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Opens up an entirely different an surreal world....
I have no idea why I subscribed to this magazine but I have been receiving it for 3 years now and simply cannot bring myself to cancel the subscription. I am not Jewish nor am I a Jewish sympathizer. I am a simple Anglo Protestant unmarried female. The viewpoint of 'The Jerusalem Report' seems to me to be relatively moderate, or at least as "moderate" as things can be in that part of the world. But everything in that part of the world is so "unmoderate" compared to everything in the United States. Since September 11, perhaps we Americans have altered our viewpoint a little, but probably VERY little in reality. The issue that initially dealt with the terrorist events of September 11 mainly seemed to say Hey, this is what we have been telling you, but we live this every day. I cannot image living that terror every day. I read the columns and the stories, and reread them, and still I don't understand. But I keep reading. How else can I learn. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great regional business resource
if you don't do business in Latin America or the Caribbean (nor want to), this magazine is useless. If you do, though, it's the only place to get complete business news across all industries... kind of like a monthly Businessweek focused on the region that will soon be a hemispheric free trade zone. The magazine is very newsy, covering latest developments in finance, shipping, import/export, manufacturing, hi-tech, agriculture, you name it... highly recommend it. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Blasphemy
As a long time reader of both, Der Spiegel as well as The Economist, reading the above reviews considering Der Spiegel a German "version" of The Economist made me smile.

Guys, stay serious. This is just not true.

While The Economist provides in-depth analysis of foreign affairs, of political and economical problems all over the world, Der Spiegel focuses on events in Germany as well as events concerning Germany in some way. There is no broad coverage of topics not related to German daily news.

Additionally, the intellectual level of Der Spiegel is much lower than that of The Economist - neither style of language, nor the articles' content can be looked upon as equivalent. Political analysis tends to be superficial (take "Unter der Tarnkappe", ed. 20/2003, which tries to explain the problems of the German government by pointing at the weight problem of the secretary of state, Joschka Fischer) and very biased (eg. during the war in Iraq, the magazine's cover denounced the US as a "bigheaded superpower").

To put it into a nutshell, Der Spiegel is one of Germany's best news magazines - but not due to its qualities, rather because of the fact that its competitors (like "Focus") are even worse. However, calling it a magazine of equal importance as The Economist is just inappropriate, in my humble opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars The world's most informative magazine
For those who are fortunate enough to have a working knowledge of German, Der Spiegel presents an astonishingly informative magazine every week. Each issue has over 200 pages, with articles about politics, art, music, architecture, travel, technology, and just about anything else you might want in a weekly magazine. Imagine The Economist at thrice its size, with longer articles, and written in German: that is Der Spiegel.
When I was still learning the language, I found Spiegel rather difficult to understand. This is probably because it's not written for idiots. Still, I learned a lot of colloquial German from reading it. For those who are learning German, and those who speak it well, there is no better source of information than Der Spiegel.

5-0 out of 5 stars The German "Time"??
Although it usually gets compared to Time Magazine, I actually think it is more akin to The Economist. This is a thick magazine with first quality reporting in German on current events, political and otherwise. To keep tabs on what's going on in German society, this magazine can't be beat. ...
