About American Prospect Magazine, The
American Prospect Magazine is an authoritative magazine of liberal ideas that is committed to a just society, an enriched democracy, and effective liberal politics. Its articles generate debate, further ideas, and set agendas, and explores and challenges the conservative views of policy and politics. The American Prospect does not back political candidates, nor does it attempt to achieve unanimity or even consistency among its writers. It is a magazine of public ideas that seeks to provide a forum for working through the heated controversies and hard choices that vex its editors and writers as much as other Americans.
