The New Criterion

It operates as a refuge for a civilizing element in short supply in contemporary America: honest criticism
- The Wall Street Journal


The New Criterion appears ten times a year from September to June and publishes articles on ideas and the arts, review of books, art exhibitions, architecture, theater, music, poetry, and commentaries on the cultural scene here and abroad. Contributors include the leading critics of our time, and The New Criterion is the most outspoken and rigorous cultural review to be founded in a generation.

The New Criterion ranked in the top ten most influential periodicals among American intellectuals according to a survey conducted by Steven Brint in In an Age of Experts: The Changing Role of Professionals in Politics and Public Life (Princeton University Press).

Its subscribers are among the most affluent in America: over one-third have household incomes of $100,000 or more. Their discretionary spending includes the purchase of art, antiques, rare books, music, and computer software.
