The Week was founded in the United Kingdom by Jolyon Connell (formerly of the right-of-centre Sunday Telegraph) in 1995. [3] In April 2001, the magazine began publishing an American edition [3] [4] and an Australian edition followed in October 2008. Dennis Publishing, founded by Felix Dennis, publishes the UK edition and, until 2012, published the Australian edition. The Week Publications publishes the U.S. edition.

Since November 2015 The Week has published a children's edition, The Week Junior, a current affairs magazine aimed at 8 to 14 year olds. [5] [6]

The Australian edition of The Week ceased operation in October 2012. The final edition, its 199th, was released on 12 October 2012. At the end, it was selling 28,000 copies a week, with a readership of 83,000. [7]

The magazine's content largely consists of summaries of news stories and opinion columns published by other media outlets earlier in the week, and presents a broad spectrum of political viewpoints. Some summaries are based on articles in foreign media that were originally published in a language other than English.
