Since 1979, the London Review of Books has stood up for the tradition of the literary and intellectual essay in English. Each issue contains up to 15 long reviews and essays by academics, writers and journalists. The London Review of Books has the largest circulation of any literary magazine in Europe (2010 ABC: 53,215). Its circulation outside the UK gives it worldwide reach and an unmatched international reputation. The special appeal of the London Review of Books lies in the way it combines topicality with depth and scholarship with good writing, and isn’t afraid to challenge received ideas.
