The View From South Lawn

Hallock, Nicholas Huston

As we enter the twenty-seventh year of the Helvidius Group, I am pleased to write that the Journal of Politics & Society continues to provide a unique platform for undergraduate scholarship in the social sciences. I believe the Journal’s confidence in the contributions of undergraduates to academic literature is justified by the original and rigorous papers found on this journal’s pages and on our website.
Over the last few years, the Journal has undergone a pronounced shift away from domestic concerns and towards an emphasis on international matters. While a cursory glance at the journal’s table of contents might suggest a return to focus on the United States, this is not exactly the case. Many papers address far-flung policy issues, while the U.S. papers do not generally look inward; instead, they concern themselves with the interaction of the United States with the rest of the world.
