The May/June 2010 issue of the Washington Monthly is now live. There are a number of interesting features in this issue. Laura McGann’s “Partisan Hacks” addresses how conservatives tackle investigative journalism. Our cover story, Editor Charles Homans’ “The Wealth of Constellations,” looks at the strange future of the American space program.

Regular College Guide readers should check out “Degrees of Speed,” by Jamie P. Merisotis and Stan Jones, about how the most effective technical schools are those that combine the low-cost and public mission of community colleges with the job-focused curricula of the best for-profit schools.

This is also our spring books issue, featuring nine reviews of recently published books, including David Remnick’s The Bridge, Sarah Ellison’s War at the Wall Street Journal, and David Lipsky’s Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace.
