The Decade in Liberalism: Defining the Agenda.

Roe v. Wade.

The Prospect began 20 years ago with a mission to rethink ideas about public policy and thereby restore plausibility and persuasiveness to American Liberalism. Then it was a quarterly out of Princeton, New Jersey, now, it's a monthly with a lively Web site.

Over the past decade, we've made a point of publishing the articles that reorient the way you think about the liberal agenda.

Here are 10 of our best (and most prescient) suggestions:

The global financial system is in need of more oversight. (2001)

The rush to war in Iraq was dangerous and misguided. (2002)

The Internet will become a Democratic organizing tool. (2003)

Las Vegas is organized labor's Shangri-La. But the rest of America ... (2004)

Are Democrats using the wrong arguments to defend reproductive rights? (2004)

Not only should we reform health care ... we should think about a public option. (2005)

The real glass ceiling for women is not at the workplace but at home. (2005)

Is racial targeting the best way to close the education achievement gap? (2007)

The second wave of AIDS: black and Southern. (2008)

About that public option: It's not as important as comprehensive, good, reform. (2009)
