Invitation from Democracy Journal

Clay Risen writes:
Dear Leonard:

I am the managing editor (www.democracyjournal.org). We are a quarterly progressive journal with an interest in both foreign and domestic policy, and our contributors hail from academia, journalism, think tanks,and the non-profit world.

In the same way that your group (The Commission on Social Issues of the John Dewey Society) is committed to getting academics into the public and policy spheres, we believe there are many people who would like to make that crossover but are at a loss for outlets.

We hope to provide precisely that opportunity.

Please consider this email an open invitation to you and your colleagues to send ideas for essays and book reviews to me.

I will drop a copy of our latest issue in the mail to you so you can get a feel for the sort of thing we're looking for.

And be sure to check out our upcoming issue, due out in December, which has a decidedly historical bent: an essay on the WWII-era Office of Civil Defense, a piece on the lessons of Vietnam for the Iraq debate, and book reviews on Albert Shanker, the 1972 McGovern campaign, and the history of black power.
