WASHINGTON – The Wilson Center announced today the relaunch of the Wilson Quarterly in a new digital format featuring multimedia content that is primed for social media and designed to fit any digital device.

The Spring 2014 issue rolls out the new format, featuring a cluster of stories on the lasting effects of the War in Afghanistan on Afghanistan and the United States. Christina Lamb examines the future of women in Afghanistan through the stories of several extraordinary women; Jesse Ruliffson’s graphic novel describes a wounded veteran’s longing for the action of combat; and a short video documentary looks at the impact of war on prosthetic technology, among other stories.
