Perspectives U.S.A. was a magazine of art and culture of the United States, that was published in New York City from 1952 to 1956,[1] as part of the so-called "Cultural Cold War against the Soviet Union."

History and profile[edit]

The first issue appeared in October 1952.[2] It was edited by James Laughlin and published by the non-profit organization Intercultural Publications, with funds from the Ford Foundation.[1] It had several editions in different languages, including English, French, German, and Italian.[1] The magazine, published on a quarterly basis,[1] ceased publication after the foundation concluded that it had little impact in Europe. The final issue was the sixteenth one, which appeared in July 1956.[3]
