a popular US news magazine, published every week. It was started in 1923 by Henry Luce, the husband of Clare Booth Luce, and Briton Hadden. It created offices for its journalists around the world and has developed a particular style of writing which is sometimes called 'Timese'. The magazine now has several different international versions. People consider it a great honour to have their picture on the cover of the magazine, and as a special feature every year it chooses a man or woman of the year. Its company, Time Inc, is part of Time Warner.
