Between our classic print magazine and our award-winning website, we’ve published more than 500 articles this year—on everything from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to the euro crisis to how to deal with the self-proclaimed Islamic State. We’re proud of all our content, but every year there are a few pieces that really stand out from the pack. So we’ve compiled some of our favorites into this anthology for handy reference. Our diverse offerings include Kenan Malik’s “The Failure of Multiculturalism,” which argues that Europe’s integration policies have entrenched divisions rather than erased them, and Ira Trivedi’s “When a Bride-to-Be Is a Bride to Buy,” an eye-opening piece on India’s bride shortage and how it has fueled the trafficking of young women. From Greece’s financial problems to the Islamic State’s statecraft, the decline of international studies in the American academy to the stagnation of reforms in China, we’ve covered it all. We hope you enjoy the collection and come back for more in 2016!

Some readers are drawn to the promise inherent in a novel, and it’s true that the longer form can offer a slow and seductive immersion, but the short story offers pleasure of another kind – the quick fix, a shot of adrenaline to the mind and heart.—Amanda Lohrey In The Best Australian Stories 2015, Amanda Lohrey, winner of the Patrick White Award and author of the acclaimed novel A Short History of Richard Kline, curates twenty pieces of exceptional short fiction. In this wide-ranging collection, there are stories that will surprise, unsettle and beguile readers. Familiar subjects are examined from new perspectives: a teenage girl sneaks into a famous film director's study and steals his diaries; the life of Picasso is reimagined in miniature vignettes. And new life is breathed into the most universal of experiences: birth, death, love and loss. The mother of a girl with hearing difficulties watches her child grow into increasing independence. A young woman makes a poignant voyage to the site of her brother’s suicide. Elegant, accomplished and evocative, these short stories move, delight and inspire.
