OverviewSuggest Edit

The Week is a family of publications which began with a print magazine more than 20 years ago. It now also includes digital editions of the magazine, with weekly apps for iPads, iPhones and Android devices – and a website that publishes distinctive online stories throughout the week.

In all its forms, The Week is designed for readers who want to know what's going on in the world, but don’t have the time read a daily newspaper from cover to cover - let alone all of them.

In Britain alone, the papers amount to a staggering 5,800 pages a week – almost ten million words.

On top of that, there’s a plethora of TV and radio bulletins to keep up with, and news websites too.

Keeping up to date with what's happening, and understanding all the issues, from all angles, has never been more taxing, or more important.
