Duke University Press is pleased to announce the addition of the magazine Tikkun to its list of titles. Edited by Rabbi Michael Lerner, Tikkun provides provocative analyses of American politics, culture, and social theory, and serves as a unique source of discourse about Israel and Palestine. Tikkun offers fresh ideas for those seeking to assist in the magazine’s goal: to heal and transform the world.
“Tikkun is a welcome addition to our publishing program,” says Duke University Press director Steve Cohn. “For the past twenty-five years, the magazine has been known as a powerful intellectual voice for the spiritual left and for taking on important and at times controversial topics.”
While continuing to be the preeminent voice of liberal and progressive Jews, Tikkun has evolved into a major interfaith magazine and seeks to build bridges between religious and secular progressives. Tikkun’s editorial direction and mission will remain the same after the transition in publisher. Duke University Press will begin publishing the quarterly magazine in 2012 with volume 27.
About the transition, Rabbi Lerner says, “the new partnership with Duke University Press will bring Tikkun additional publishing and sales expertise as well as a shared commitment to publishing risk-taking and innovative intellectual work.”
Subscriptions for individuals, as well as reduced-price subscriptions for members of Tikkun’s Network of Spiritual Progressives, will be handled by the Tikkun editorial office at tikkun.org. The title will be included at no cost in the 2012 e-Duke Journals Scholarly Collections and will also be available through Project Muse. Institutions can subscribe by contacting Duke University Press at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 888-651-1022 (toll-free in the US and Canada) or 919-688-5134.
