Understanding Today's World

Reading Lists Curated By the Foreign Affairs Editors

Welcome to Foreign Affairs.

Our subscribers have access to our full archive dating back to 1922—and for a limited time this month, we’re opening up some of that access to the public. To help you take advantage of this rare event, our staff has put together a few reading recommendations to show you the quality and breadth of the work we publish. From how to understand the U.S.-Chinese relationship to how to understand climate changePutin, or the legacy of the financial crisis, we have you covered.

For almost a century, we’ve been working with the world’s most insightful and influential scholars, policymakers, and leaders to deliver analysis on the most important issues shaping our collective future. While other publications are busy breaking the news, we’re busy collaborating with expert authors to put those current events in deeper global and historical context.

We hope you’ll enjoy exploring, getting to know our work, and joining our community of readers, whose support makes our work possible. We look forward to having you with us.
