The 50 Year Argument
New York Review of Books is an American journal founded in 1963, focusing on literature, culture, economics, science and current events. With reports on important historic events from the Vietnam War to the disclosure of torture in Iraqi prison camps, the history of the magazine is also an insight into the modern history of the United States. The New York Review of Books has become synonymous with high quality and intellectually stimulating content through contributors like Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, Derek Walcott, Noam Chomsky and Mary McCarthy. In 2013, the fifty-year history of the journal was documented by Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi in the documentary The 50 year argument.
