Editor's Note: The View from South Lawn

Mathew, Josh

"The 20th edition of the Journal of Politics and Society serves as an opportunity to reflect and look ahead. Established in 1989, the Journal has showcased critical analysis, penned both by undergraduate students and leading scholars and statepersons. In recent years, the Journal has grown in leaps and bounds. Its call for papers has extended beyond the gates of Columbia University to across the country and around the world. Originally only distributed to Ivy League campuses, the Journal, thanks to former Editor-in-Chief Jacob Weaver, enters its third year of distribution in bookstores nationwide.
Despite these changes, the Helvidius Group remains committed to its primary purpose: to provide a forum for undergraduate scholarship in the social sciences. The Journal now often drifts away from the United States and toward Latin American indigenous movements and Middle Eastern water conflicts, but we continue to highlight the vast potential for astute and relevant undergraduate research."--from page 1
