From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Nation and Atheneum or simply The Nation was a United Kingdom political weekly newspaper with a Liberal / Labour viewpoint. It was formed in 1921 from the merger of the Athenaeum, a literary magazine published in London since 1828 and the smaller and newer Nation.

The enterprise was purchased by a group led by the economist John Maynard Keynes in 1923. From then on it carried numerous articles by Keynes.

In 1931 it was absorbed into the Labour weekly the New Statesman which was known as the New Statesman and Nation until 1964.[1][2]
