Almost from the moment its inaugural issue appeared in September 1995, The Weekly Standard has been widely considered the nation's preeminent journal of political opinion and cultural commentary -- and the one magazine you've absolutely got to read if you want to keep up with American conservatism. Beyond reporting the events of the times, The Weekly Standard has played a central role in every major political drama of the past decade. In fact, so influential has it proved in Washington -- year in and year out, no matter which party controlled the White House -- that it's become a must-read for anyone who wants to understand American politics and society as a whole.

Now, in The Weekly Standard: A Reader, editor William Kristol gathers together some of the very best articles and essays the magazine has published in its first decade. The dramas are here, of course: the "Republican Revolution" in Congress; Monica Lewinsky; the Florida recount of 2000; and, above all, 9/11 and the war on terrorism. And on hand to recount and reflect on them is The Weekly Standard's matchless, all-star stable of writers: Fred Barnes, David Brooks, Tucker Carlson, and P. J. O'Rourke, to name just a few.

But there's always been much more to The Weekly Standard than just the week's news. So The Weekly Standard: A Reader is not merely an anthology of unsurpassed opinion journalism. Here readers will find an enormous treasury of timeless writing about dozens of subjects -- art, books, music, movies, you name it -- each handled with the same unique blend of insider savvy, reflective wisdom, and mordant wit that's earned The Weekly Standard an authoritative place in American public life.
