A friend pointed me to a publication called Lapham's Quarterly. Laphman's is a quarterly publication that targets a single topic in each issue. The contributors are contemporary and historical writers.
LAPHAM'S QUARTERLY sets the story of the past in the frame of the present. Four times a year the editors seize upon the most urgent question then current in the headlines - foreign war, financial panic, separation of church and state - and find answers to that question from authors whose writings have passed the test of time.
