it appears that The Baffler
is resuming publication with Issue 19.
published since it inception, this is the publications second resurrection. John H. Summers (prev
) has purchased The Baffler
and has signed a contract for publication through 2016, so the bold can subscribe here
and commodify their dissent. You can also toss your money to them at kickstarter
, which features a video and the best succinct outline of their plans.
The theme for The Baffler
19 is antibusiness and includes contributions
by the founding editor Thomas Frank
, previously discussed here
. Maureen Tkacik (prev)
fires off a salvo at the Atlantic
, essentially arguing that in previous eras the CIA had to buy out lefty cultural organizations and now private enterprise like the Atlantic does the job for them. A bit more info and background on the piece from a conservative blog here.
Summers lofty ambition? Dwight Macdonald’s seminal Politics
publication: with long form (~10,000 word) art and criticism. Of course, the masthead notes “No interns were used in the making of this Baffler.”
