Jacobin - The Five Year Plan

Jacobin, I've been slowly realising over the last year or so, is definitely one of the most impressive, and stylish, newer journals on the Left in the English-speaking world.  Drawing on contributors from across the globe, though principally with an American focus, it provides sophisticated non-academic discussion of politics, economics, culture and history.  Highlighted by Perry Anderson in his obituary-essay on Alexander Cockburn in the New Left Review last year, and joined by the likes of n+1 which was recently discussed intelligently by Francis Mulhern also in the NLR, it represents a platform for young American left intellectuals, and has become essential reading. 

Here Jacobin notes and celebrates its fifth birthday, today:
