In a market swamped by the journalistic equivalent of fast food, Standpoint offers the discerning reader a feast of great writing. Its core mission is to celebrate our civilization, its arts and its values — in particular democracy, debate and freedom of speech — at a time when they are under threat.

Standpoint provides an opportunity for a fresh, truly international cast of writers to explore the timely and the timeless. It offers a guide for those perplexed by the 21st century and a running commentary for those who are happy to embrace it.

In a world of rapid change, Standpoint is an indispensable resource and companion.
