Revue de metaphysique et de morale focused an issue on Strauss in July-August 1989, and Critique did so in March 2004. Strauss’s work is also increasingly translated and discussed in China, as is noted in an article in the July 28, 2008 edition of The New Yorker. His works have been translated, often with significant critical introductions or essays, into Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, and Spanish.
