Ageing Statesman

March 1976
National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p205
The article focuses on developments related to the British weekly publication "New Statesman," as of March 2006. The intellectual and rhetorical level of the socialist and leftist publication was generally high under Paul Johnson's editorship from 1965 to 1972. Anthony Howard succeeded Johnson, who has allegedly led the publication into a steady decline. The column of Auberon Waugh has been providing relief from the leftist tone of the rest of the publication. A January 23 article by Alexander Cockburn gives a fair example of the new style of the publication under Howard.
