We warmly congratulate contributing editor Kai Bird, along with his co-author (and Nation contributor) Martin Sherwin, on winning the Pulitzer Prize for biography for their American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer (an excerpt ran in our April 25, 2005, issue). It is a formidable work, twenty-five years in the making. Kai worked here in the late 1970s and much of the 1980s as assistant editor, associate editor and columnist.

Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, who died April 17, aged 84, was a provocative, liberal-minded Conservative rabbi, a scholar and teacher and a prolific author; he served as president of the American Jewish Congress and vice president of the World Jewish Congress. He contributed several pieces to The Nation and reported on Israel in 1950.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply-reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish everyday at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.

Onwards,

Katrina vanden Heuvel
Editorial Director and Publisher, The Nation
