    I was wondering if anyone could point me towards a few Weekly/monthly magazines that I could subscribe to. I am specifically interested in informative magazines. For things like:

    Current Affairs and Economics
    Geography/History
    Techonology

    I want formal (kinda) magazines, to help improve my vocabulary, general knowledge, and understanding of the world

    So any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Someone's gonna say this sooner or later - The Economist. Must read weekly magazine.

    I also subscribe to PC World for information on technology/gadgets -- but I also get my fill through daily browsing of technology related websites and blogs.

    I remember being able to subscribe through the website.

    http://www.economist.com/

    Site doesn't seem to be loading for me now for some odd reason.

    There's also TIME magazine but it hardly goes as deep as The Economist does.

    Harvard Business Review is another excellent one.

    National Geographic
    The Spectator(Slight right wing bias)

    Oh, it's not a magazine per se, but the Financial Times is worth a go. Informative and fairly interesting.

    Nuts is quite a good read. Also try Escort or for your more upmarket reader, a copy of Mayfair.

    Hope that helps,

    You've never heard of Nuts?

    Okay, it's awful, but you should have least seen one of those 'Don't expect any help on a Tuesday...' adverts.

    Ask your newsagent if they stock them. They really are quite a read. They are designed more for the male driven market though, although some women with short spikey hair may find them of use.

    As others have said, The Economist.

    For Engineering/Technology I also read the monthly IEE magazine, or IET as it is now.

    I would recommend Adbusters. It is a Canadian activist magazine devoted to political and social causes.
