Welcome to The Correspondent bookstore! Our books originate on The Correspondent, the online journalism platform that serves as an antidote to the daily news grind. We are proud to be entirely ad-free, beholden only to our 47,000 paying members and our journalistic principles.


About The Correspondent

The Correspondent got its start in the spring of 2013 with a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign. Some 20,000 pioneering members, with total contributions of more than $1.7 million, showed their support for The Correspondent's mission of producing in-depth journalism that actively engages readers. Since then, members get to read and share quality pieces that provide context for interpreting other news stories and the world around us. Journalists in turn benefit from a ready network of member expertise.

The stories emerging from this unique online collaboration are changing journalism. The Correspondent gives sound knowledge and new voices a firm foothold in the media, shaping the stories we tell one another.

By reading our books, you help support The Correspondent’s new form of independent, constructive journalism.
