The Week

The Week

"The Week" (ISSN|1362-3435) was created by Jolyon Connell and Jeremy O'Grady in 1995. It provides a review of the week's most important news, as well as coverage of the arts, business, health and science. Its motto is "All you need to know about everything that matters". A U.S. edition (ISSN|1533-8304) was launched in April 2001 by Dennis Publishing Ltd, which now publishes both editions.

Defunct magazines known as The Week

"The Week" has been the title of two other weekly newsmagazines founded in the United Kingdom. These are not connected in any way with the currently published magazine.

Marxist journalist Claud Cockburn launched the first publication known as "The Week" as a newsletter in the spring of 1933, after he had returned from reporting on Germany. It focused on the rise of fascism, in a style that anticipated "Private Eye" and won a wide readership, according to Cockburn's son. [ [ My Father, Claud Cockburn, the MI5 Suspect] , from a June 2005 article on the "CounterPunch" website] Jessica Mitford attributed the journal's influence to its use of undercover sources. ["A Fine Old Conflict", quoted in [ Spartacus Educational] ] It ceased publication in 1941. [ [ Spartacus Educational] ]

Ken Coates and Pat Jordan refounded "The Week" some time before 1965 [] . They were Marxist members of the British Labour Party connected to the "New Left Review", to which Claud Cockburn occasionally contributed. Their version of "The Week" provided a socialist critique of Harold Wilson's government, notably over its failure to oppose the Vietnam War. Jordan edited the paper until 1968, when he cooperated with Tariq Ali in launching "The Black Dwarf". At that time "The Week" became a monthly magazine called "International", which was published by the International Marxist Group.
