Policy Review


Policy Review

"Policy Review" is one of America's leading conservative journals. It was founded by the Heritage Foundation and was for many years the foundation's flagship publication. In 2001, the publication was acquired by the Stanford, California-based Hoover Institution, though it maintains its office on Washington, D.C.'s Dupont Circle.

"Policy Review" has published some of the best conservative intellectual thinking. Many of its editors from the 1980s and 1990s have gone on to exert influence on national public policy, including:
* Tucker Carlson
* Dinesh D'Souza
* Michael Johns

Some contributing authors to "Policy Review" have included:
* Spencer Abraham
* Elliott Abrams
* George Allen
* Dick Armey
* John R. Bolton
* William F. Buckley, Jr.
* Tom Clancy
* Bob Dole
* Daniel Pipes

"Policy Review" in popular culture

"Policy Review" is mentioned in the 2003 movie "Shattered Glass". Near the beginning of the movie, which is based on actual events, a receptionist for "The New Republic" says to "New Republic" writer Stephen Glass (played by Hayden Christensen): "Call for you on three, sweetie...someone from "Policy Review"."

A female editor played by Chloë Sevigny then turns to Glass and, in a somewhat provocative tone of voice, asks him: "When did you start talking to "Policy Review"?"
