More About This NOOK Magazine

Overview

"The flagship publication of the left, The Nation claims the highest circulation of any weekly political magazine," according to —of all cheerleaders— The Wall Street Journal. Founded in 1865 and more popular today than ever, The Nation covers progressive politics, news and culture and publishes hundreds of pages each month, delivered weekly and jam-packed with news, features, investigative reporting, editorials, analysis, book and movies reviews--award-winning writing that entertains and educates as it impacts public policy.

The Nation has been called the moral compass of American political thought for being ahead of the curve on issues from abolition, public education, equal rights for women and workers and the growing threat of fascism in Europe in the 1930s, to the Cold War excesses of McCarthyism and Vietnam, nuclear proliferation, the debacle in Iraq and the worldwide financial meltdown.

    Finally!

    I've been waiting for this since I got my nook! Looks great and reads just as good. Also, can't beat the price. The Nation is a must read for anyone interested in progressive politics.

    Good to see The Nation move into the digital age

    A journal of liberal opinion for generations, The Nation still manages to infuriate the right. And for that it's worth the price of admission.

    Perhaps the most striking comment from a previous reviewer is that a "history teacher" would not know what The Nation is. Apparently, the same coaches are teaching history as they did when I was in school.

    Moral compass?

    If you are a conservative, this is NOT the magazine for you. It is CNN in print form. I am a history teacher and was looking for informative articles to include in class. Too much liberal slant on the articles. I did try 2 issues, but the second one did not get any better.

    Best Political Magazine by Far!

    The Nation speaks truth to power. They are not beholden to the corporate oligarchy that runs this country. The Nation was founded by abolitionists just after the Civil War, and has been published ever since with integrity and wit. Long Live The Nation!

    If you are an idiot, this is not for you

    Morons, narcissists, cretins, knuckle-draggers, Ayn Rand & Rush dittoheads, National Review readers, and other Fox News dupes will be unable to comprehend the articles, much less appreciate them. The sheer level of intellect crammed into every weekly issue is intimidating even to readers with Ph.D.s. Looking for Mark Twain & H.L. Mencken? You'll find them here in their modern incarnations. Let your students read it, teacher, they just might teach you something.

    Hardly a *Moral Compass*

    I'm about as centrist as you can get. *Independent* through and through.

    Translate "read to keep up with what's going on" to "read to remain dumbed-down and brainwashed" and you have a more accurate description.

    Please, sheeples, think for yourselves!! Stop letting CNN, MSNBC and their ilk tell you what you SHOULD be thinking.

    Glad I only got a trial subscription and didn't waste real money.

    Canceled after three issues.

    One of the best periodicals on the market!

    The Nation is reliably untainted by special interests. They are one of the few good sources of news.

    The magazine that keeps you up to date

    I enjoy reading this magazine for the political aspect,and to keep up with what is going on around the world. Better than that I get a new issue every week.

    This magazine is more like a "citizens guide". Love it!

    Every citizen needs to know what is happening in our Nation, in order to make educated decisions, and be an active participant in the political process. In an age of ever increasing propaganda in so many media outlets, choosing fact based information is essential to really understand the issues. While The Nation takes a progressive position on "the issues", it does not journey into unreasonable logic, nor does it present lies as fact or credible reporting. Love it!!

    No points being made

    First, let me point out that I am a liberal.


    I am disappointed and regret to report that I have learned nothing from this magazine. The writing in this magazine consistently fails to get to a point and thus seldom makes one.

    No wonder it holds no interest for me.

    Neutralize Faux News

    Get the real story - factually based instead of extremist opinions masquerading as reality.

    Great magazine!

    The same great magazine, on an e-reader.

    I think the navigation could be improved (why 4-5 small tables of contents instead of one big one?), but overall it's fine. It's also disappointing to go to The Nation's website and see the "current issue" listed is the next issue.

    Otherwise, it's a good journal to support with a subscription.

    What can one say about The Nation? Its standards are as high as ever, and it is still a great read. The most informative liberal publication I have seen.

    First, I love the Nation Magazine. It's exactly the kind of maga

    First, I love the Nation Magazine. It's exactly the kind of magazine I enjoy.

    But reading it on the smaller device like Nook Tablet, Nook Color or Nook HD is nearly impossible. BN has a crazy and terrible magazine viewer intended to show you as many ads as possible. Unfortunately, it seems to be incompatible with the Nation magazine itself. If you click on the "ArticleView" it pops up a slim window about 1/3 the size of the page. Extremely hard to read. You need to read this digital edition ONLY on the larger 9 inch HD+. Ironically, they published it in a more readable format on the e-ink Simple Touch. On ST I used to read Nation weekly. But on Nook Tablet I almost never bother to read it; it's too cumbersome.

    One of the only ways to stay truly informed

    I'm not sure I could get along without the Nation. Not only does it provide coverage of issues of importance routinely ignored by the mainstream media, it does so with wit and verve. The writing is superb, dominated by fearless and tireless journalist who never seem to fail in challenging the reader. Short of becoming destitute, I may never drop my subscription to this essential piece of journalistic excellence.

    Fine magazine on paper, but not for the Nook

    I like the Nation, its writers, and its articles--that's why I decided to go with a Nook subscription. However, on the Nook, it is no longer a weekly magazine; instead, it is only every other week. After nearly an hour on the phone with B&N "customer service", I was told yes, it is supposed to be weekly, and they confirmed I'm only getting it semi-weekly, but there's nothing anyone can do about it. I cancelled my Nook subscription and will go back to reading the paper version.
