The American Conservative is the only print publication I've subscribed to in the past 7-8 years. It's a nice reminder that conservatism isn't supposed to be an amalgam of juvenile jingoism, Democrat bashing (as if our opponents were "the Democrats," as opposed to the entire American political class), and vulgar speech and behavior for the sake of being politically incorrect. The magazine has published scholars of very high caliber, on a range of topics of interest to all Americans. Its greatest contribution has been its promotion of a peaceful, noninterventionist foreign policy, the only position that makes sense for a conservative.

_The American Conservative_ is, hands down, the most insightful publication in the right-of-center political-publishing world, if not in all of political publishing. This is, perhaps, because ultimately it's not primarily a magazine about politics, but a magazine about ideas. _TAC_ offers commentary, especially on its fantastic Website, on real-time issues, but its monthly publication is far more thoughtful, concerned less with ideology and instant gratification, and more with opening the minds of its readers. Any conservative magazine willing to take on Thatcher mythology _and_ to extol the traditionalist virtues of Prince Charles in the selfsame Anglo-oriented edition -- the same issue wherein Bill Kauffman reminds us that no high-school-basketball taunt is as effective as "We Celebrate Christmas!" -- is worth the time, and subscription money, of any conservative, moderate, liberal, or radical interested in gaining new perspective, plunging intellectual depths not often explored in magazines, and being reminded of what right-wing strains actually constitute conservatism -- and which don't.

It was glad to see that The American Conservative has added a kindle edition. I am a charter subscriber to the print edition and have never been disappointed . TAC presents conservatism in a unique ,traditional form, without party or ideology driving the editorial team.

The format in kindle edition is laid out nicely making it easy to scan articles for reading.

Thanks TAC for producing a kindle version.

TAC was started when virtually every voice on the American Right was braying for a war in Iraq. It stood alone in those days, trying to remind readers that there were other conservative traditions besides the bombs away neocon one then sweeping the country. It lost that battle, but in retrospect it was right. Now, as the same thing seems to be happening with regards to Iran, its voice is more important than ever.

My personal views are all over the spectrum however time and time again I find myself intrigued by and agreeing with the authors in The American Conservative. No issue is sacred and all options on an issue are considered. Read, enjoy and become a little more rounded.

There is only one independent, nonpartisan, non-ideological conservative general-interest magazine in America. This is it. Nothing else comes close. If there is to be a resurgence of anything resembling a thoughtful American conservatism, it will have been incubated by The American Conservative.

I've been reading and contributing to the magazine for several years. It helps to recall the dark days after 9/11 when dissent over the direction of our foreign policy and counter-terrorism measures at home was stifled within the conservative movement, when our so-called "Realists" were marginalized and the Republican Party demanded pure fealty to the idea of preventative war as a solution to the global terrorist threat. TAC was born amidst this, a brave seedling that became a strong organic opposition to the hegemony. And thanks to the wisdom of its publisher and editors, it remains strong to this day, serving as a counterpoint to reactionary Republicanism, the continuing neoconservative foreign policy agenda in Washington and to tired, hackneyed rightwing dogma overall. A new breed and very much welcome on the political landscape today!

There is more than enough journalist ineptitude to go around these days- conservative and liberal alike. I believe journalistic integrity is at an all time low in America: we have more "news" and "broadcast personalities" at our disposal than ever before... and yet we're arguably more misinformed with "junk food news" than we've ever been. Fox news (and talk show pundits like Rush Limbaugh) is (in my opinion) the epitome of "junk food news."

Please do not confuse with TAC.

"The American Conservative" is intelligent and insightful reading: it criticizes Republicans and Democrats alike- it can criticize President Obama without villianizing him or resorting to silly issues like "birtherism" or the "socialist scare" so commonly prevelent on FOX news. The magazine is straight forward in its news as is The Economist or any other respectable periodical.

I do not restrict myself to such labels as "conservative" or "liberal"; I read TAC and I also read "The Atlantic" (deemed a "liberal" magazine). There is good to be found on both sides. There is also prejudice, extremism and ignorance on both sides. Just because the word "CONSERVATIVE" is in the magazine's title doesn't mean it gets lost in Tea Party rhetoric or slanted / biased stories that plague both sides of the media isle. Anything but. Articles are well written and informative- Most importantly: stories hold BOTH sides accountable:

For example, a recent article from TAC entitled "Porky Populism" (published August 6, 2012) presents an interesting argument about fast food, health care, and how conservatives could learn a lesson or two from a more liberal perspective of eating healthy (the article does in fact mention that it over generalizes stereotypes to make its point).
