"A tremendous resource in this time of chaos."

We publish leading scholars, activists, and writers on the most pressing political debates of our time.

But as a small nonprofit, we rely on reader support. Will you help support bold thinking about a more just world?

"An indispensable pillar of the public sphere."

That’s what sociologist Alondra Nelson says of Boston Review. Independent and nonprofit, we believe in the power of collective reasoning and imagination to create a more just world.

That’s why there are no paywalls on our website, but we can’t do it without the support of our readers. Will you make a tax-deductible contribution today?
