Lecture looks at Commentary magazine in the 1960s
Author Morris Dickstein presents the lecture "America's Best Magazine?: Commentary in the 1960s." The Commentary archive resides at the Ransom Center and includes correspondence with Norman Mailer, Bernard Malamud, James Baldwin and Elie Wiesel.

Founded in 1945 as a monthly journal of general interest from within the Jewish community, Commentary went through a dramatic shift in 1960 under its new editor, Norman Podhoretz, who applied more rigorous critical standards and made greater use of strong-minded New York intellectuals such as Irving Howe, Alfred Kazin and Mailer. The magazine responded to all the major controversies of the decade, from the Eichmann trial and the civil rights movement to the Vietnam War and the Columbia student uprising.

Dickstein is Distinguished Professor of English and Theatre at the CUNY Graduate Center.
