A legendary publication in the history of photography, William Klein’s New York Is Good & Good for You (1956) made him an international sensation. Rereleased with photos from the original book and new work from his personal collection, New York 1954.55 (Manchester, England: Dewi Lewis, 1995) showcases how Klein redefined the art of photography.

In A Queer Geography (New York: Crown Publishing, 1996), author Frank Browning maps the regional influences on the rites and rituals of gay men. Browning’s quest takes him from Kentucky to Italy, all the while raising social and psychological questions about gay life.

An unabashed progressive response to William Bennett’s conservative The Book of Virtues (1993), A Call to Character: A Family Treasury (New York: HarperCollins, 1995) by Colin Greer and Herbert Kohl is a collection of stories, poems, and fables designed to help children deal with moral decisions.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
