Ramparts was a American political and literary magazine which appeared between 1962 and 1975.
Ramparts strongly opposed the Vietnam War. It also unearthed the first conspiracy theory about the Kennedy assassination, and in 1967 revealed to widespread astonishment that the CIA had backed the National Student Association as part of its Cold War strategy.
Ramparts also published Che Guevara's diaries with an introduction by Fidel Castro and ran the prison diaries of Eldridge Cleaver (later republished as Soul on Ice). Contributors to the magazine included Susan Sontag, Noam Chomsky, Seymour Hersh, Lowell Bergman, James Ridgeway, Pete Hamill, and Abbie Hoffman. Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner got his start there, as did Mother Jones founder Adam Hochschild.
