This week's New Statesman features three men under fire. Here at home, our political correspondent James Macintyre tells the inside story of the plot to oust Gordon Brown -- the story we broke online on Wednesday lunchtime.
James has also got the inside scoop on a brewing backbench revolt against the Speaker, John Bercow.
Across the Atlantic, the Washington Post correspondent Alec MacGillis offers a fascinating assessment of President Barack Obama's first year in office. You can see a taster online of our cover story, "A year of living dangerously", but to read the full piece get yourself along to a decent newsagent.
Elsewhere, Francis Beckett says baby boomers have betrayed their children; the Dublin-based journalist Rob Brown says that if you want a foretaste of the Tories' economic policy look to the meltdown in Ireland; and Will Self discusses Princess Diana and the cult of the roadside shrine.
