company logo

ADVISORY, Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

What:

Foreign Affairs Magazine, the leading forum for serious discussion of American foreign policy and global affairs, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square to celebrate its new design for the New Year. For the first time, the issue features a photographic cover as well as profiles, interviews with world leaders, and contributors' bios. The redesign aims to broaden its range and appeal at a time when the arch of international affairs encompasses more than it ever has—capital markets, culture, technology, education, global health, women's rights, American fiscal policy, and even U.S. politics.

Foreign Affairs also celebrates the launch of its iPad app, which is free to download from the iTunes App Store and includes the current issue, several back issues, and The Iran and the Bomb ebook. In addition to print and digital innovation, the magazine has been expanding into live events and conferences which allow readers to connect directly with the experts.

In honor of the occasion, Gideon Rose, Editor, will ring the Opening Bell.
