Commendations

For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.

Howard Zinn, social activist and author of A People's History of America

What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.

Troth Wells - one of the founders of the New Internationalist cooperative

I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.

Grant K - long-term New Internationalist subscriber.

New Internationalist keeps me focussed on the realities of the wider world and helps to keep my rushed life in perspective.
