Serene Foreign Affairs Magazine Draws Buzz (Again)

One would be hard-pressed to recall a period of time when the otherwise staid Foreign Affairs magazine, published since 1922 as a forum for world leaders, generated buzz. Twice. In the space of seven months.

Former Governor Huckabee’s astonishingly aggressive foreign policy recommendations in his article in the upcoming January/February 2008 edition is now a part of the chattering class conversation now that he tops many early primary state polls. Earlier in the year — in the July/ August 2007 issue — Foreign Affairs magazine drew similar buzz from another contributing writer/ politician. Citing ”censorship,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey V.Lavrov withdrew an article he submitted to the magazine on the grounds that the editors had altered his text. Editor James Hoge rejected the censorship charge outright.
