New Humanist magazine covers

Subscribe to New Humanist now and get four issues a year delivered to your door. Each edition is packed with elegant, intelligent writing about politics, culture, the arts and science. We feature essays, reviews, commentary and reportage from leading writers such as Kenan Malik, Suzanne Moore, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Marcus Chown, AL Kennedy, Nina Power and Jim al-Khalili, as well as the best new talent. Recent issues have covered:

  • Was there a 'good' side in the First World War?
  • How much do scientists really know about the universe?
  • Essays on culture from Muriel Spark and Teju Cole to Lars von Trier and Breaking Bad
  • Maoist cults, conspiracy theories and “miracle” cures debunked
  • Reports on the sectarian war in Central African Republic and political Islam in Egypt
  • Debates on atheism, ethics, free speech and feminism

Each issue is beautifully designed, with cartoons by Martin Rowson, Grizelda, Emily Flake and others—and a selection of new poetry.

« You'd think that in the 21st century, science and reason wouldn't need defending. But they do, all the time. That's why it's so important to support the Rationalist Association and read New Humanist magazine. They're beacons of clear thought. »

— Angela Saini, science journalist and author of Geek Nation
