The Atlantic’s September Issue

A sampling of the offerings in the September issue of The Atlantic are as follows: In the cover story – “Can the Middle Class be Saved?” – Don Peck explores how America adapts to “societal transformations.” James Fallows, meanwhile, reports from China on the “Jasmine” protests that occurred on the heels of anti-government demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt. Megan McArdle writes on why the White House should miss the recently departed economist Austan Goolsbee. James Parker explores the the world of celebrities who “crack under the lens” of outlets like TMZ. And bugs. You didn’t read that wrong. Daniel Fromson reports on an Amsterdam-based company selling soy-glazed mealworms. That’s right…to eat. Visit TheAtlantic.com to read the stories.
