Novy Mir has been published in Moscow since January 1925. It was supposed to be modelled on the popular pre-Soviet literary magazine Mir Bozhy ("God's World"),[1] which was published from 1892 to 1906, and its follow-up, Sovremenny Mir ("Contemporary World"),[2] which was published from 1906 to 1917. It mainly published prose that approved of the general line of the Communist Party, though a small controversy occurred in 1945, when Novy Mir published an essay by Aleksandr Bek that mentioned six different slang terms for "perineum".

In the early 1960s, Novy Mir changed its political stance, leaning to a Joseph Brodsky and Vladimir Nabokov.
