Lapham's Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue of this extremely well written publication addresses a topic of current interest and concern—War, Religion, Money, Medicine, Nature, Crime—by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past. Valuable observations of the human character and predicament don't become obsolete. From the US.

The texts are drawn from authors on the order of Shakespeare, Aristotle, Tolstoy, Twain, Thucydides, Woolf, Dickens, Wharton, Gibbon, Keynes, Gandhi, Balzac, Austen, Thoreau, Didion, and De Gaulle. Abridged rather than paraphrased, none of the texts in the Quarterly runs to a length longer than seven pages, others no more that seven paragraphs. Together with the writing of the world's great thinkers, each issue offers full-color reproductions of paintings by the world's great painters. The connecting of the then with the now is augmented with the further evidence found in letters, speeches, diaries and photographs, in confessions voluntary and coerced, in five-act plays and three-part songs.
