I'm a college student. I'd like to read a history magazine (online preferred) that relates to History in the same way that "Foreign Policy" relates to Politics or "The Economist" relates to Economics. Are there any?

    Welcome to History, your question is a bit off topic as you are not allowed, among many things defined in the FAQ, to ask for reference material, so, it may have to be closed. – Russell Oct 27 '12 at 12:04
  • As Russell said, welcome to History SE! Here, we use a Q&A format. This question does not really fit that format because no one answer will be right. Because of that, the community here has agreed that questions asking for recommendations are off-topic. If you have any objective questions, feel free to ask! – American Luke Oct 27 '12 at 12:52

    While it is true that this question does not fit our format, it seems to me that it would be useful to have such information. Because of that, I am going to convert this to a community wiki, which means we can provide answers that are more of a list of recommendations. I also edited it to make it more of a History topic because I feel like that was the intention. – Steven Drennon Oct 27 '12 at 14:14

BBC History Magazine is my favourite history magazine. They have a great weekly podcast. There are online and print editions too.


I get discounted subscription offers for Current History all the time. Although I've never been a subscriber the material seems to be in the same style as say a Foreign Policy or Foreign Affairs. It is focused on foreign affairs with a historical emphasis in the analysis.
