I would love to get this for my Kindle, but you do not get access to the online archives. Which as a masters student is ideal (but so is the portability of the Kindle). What to do?

I have contacted customer service at both Amazon and FA magazine and both responded quickly with the fact that you do not get archive access with the Kindle (yet we pay $24 per year) which is $6 more than the student subscription, which I would gladly pay for the convenience and portability. But without archive access needless to say that I will not be going with the Kindle subscription. I like the Kindle and I like FA magazine, but this product does not meet expectations.

If you are really interested in this capability contact FA magazine and Amazon, maybe if enough people showed interest they would adjust. Please note I am not giving FA magazine a one star, just the Kindle version.

I just cancelled my subscription because of the lack of archive access. I enjoy the magazine itself, but the lack of the archive access is a deal killer for me.

The volume I read basically mentioned only technology aspects which I didn't like. It's not of my interest. I thought it was more political.

I downloaded the free sample of Foreign Affairs because I had always been interested in seeing what The Council on Foreign Relations and the establishment puts out in terms of analysis and forward thinking on issues. I was expecting at least cutting-edge, sophisticated, nuanced perspective, if elitist-biased. I read an article. Instead of sophistication and nuance, it turns out this is total cliched, standard establishment fluff, which you could get free by reading Yahoo News or MSNBC. The article I read was about the divergence of worldwide employment and globalization. Instead of citing the latest Austrian monetary and free-market theory or the business cycle distortions caused by central banking, this article simply claimed we need more spending on government education, "reform" of the tax code (instead of eliminating taxes) to make it more streamlined (more efficient at taking our money and transferring it to the CFR's corporate cronies), and "smarter" government policy to enhance first-world manufacturing (the problem with our economy is not too much government regulation, it's a lack of 'smart government'?). In short, Foreign Relations is the perfect example of why the Western economies are floundering. The people aho write these articles are the same people who run our countries. No wonder we're in so much trouble. They believe in top-down, centralized solutions and authoritarian government. The West will not turn the corner and get better until we clean these neocons out of government and respectable society.
