The Wilson Quarterly is a magazine published by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. The magazine was founded in 1976 by Peter Braestrup and James H. Billington. The Quarterly is noted for its nonpartisan, nonideological approach to current issues, with articles written from various perspectives. Designed to make the research and debates of scholars and intellectuals accessible to a general audience, it covers a wide range of topics, from science policy and literature to foreign affairs.

History

The debut issue of the Wilson Quarterly in Autumn 1976 established two of the magazine’s signature features. Article “clusters” explore different facets of a subject, often with contrasting points of view. Early subjects ranged from the exploration of space to the new revisionist history of the New Deal, with writers including Walt.W. Rostow, Rem Koolhaas, George F. Kennan Jr., John Updike, Carlos Fuentes, and Mario Vargas Llosa. The magazine also includes individual essays. The Wilson Quarterly's other signature feature is its In Essence section, which distills more than two dozen notable articles selected from hundreds of scholarly journals and specialized publications.

The Wilson Quarterly has gone through various format changes over the years, and between 1983 and 1990 it was published five times a year. Today, as its name suggests, it is published quarterly.

When Peter Braestrup left the Quarterly in 1989 to join Billington at the Library of Congress (where he was instrumental in launching the short-lived but critically acclaimed Civilization magazine), he was succeeded by Jay Tolson, the magazine’s literary editor, subsequently the author of a biography of novelist Walker Percy, Pilgrim in the Ruins. Tolson added a successful poetry section designed to introduce readers to significant poets of the past and present. The section was initially co-edited by Joseph Brodsky and poet laureate Anthony Hecht.

The magazine continued to focus on public questions, exemplified by the 1998 cluster “Is Everything Relative?” with articles by E. O. Wilson, Richard Rorty, and Paul R. Gross debating Wilson’s claim in Consilience that all branches of knowledge will eventually be unified by a biological understanding of human life. In “The Second Coming of the American Small Town” in 1992, Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk offered an early in-depth look at the New Urbanism and some of the animating ideas behind Smart Growth.

When Tolson left to become a senior writer at U.S. News & World Report in 1999, Steven Lagerfeld was named editor. Lagerfeld had also worked under founding editor Peter Braestrup, joining the staff in 1981. In keeping with the times and the focus of the parent Woodrow Wilson Center, the magazine looked increasingly overseas, filling the period around the beginning of the Iraq war with distinctive clusters on American empire, foreign writers’ views of the United States, the history of Iraq, and World War IV. Other topics have ranged from the role of competition in American life to the ideas of traffic “guru” Hans Monderman. Recent writers have spanned the spectrum from conservative economist and blogger Tyler Cowen to liberal political thinker Benjamin Barber. In 2006, the Wilson Quarterly received Utne Magazine’s Independent Press Award for General Excellence[1].

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
