Commendations

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

I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.

If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.

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.
