Prospect has acquired a reputation as the most intelligent magazine of current affairs and cultural debate in Britain. Both challenging and entertaining, the magazine seeks to make complex ideas accessible and enjoyable by commissioning the best writers, editing them vigorously and packaging their work in a well designed and illustrated magazine.

Latest Issue

Turning the corner into 2021, Prospect has a new cleaner look and a streamlined layout. In this double issue, we are tackling the big themes challenging our world, arranged under four sections. In our opening essay, Timothy Garton Ash outlines the threats to Liberal Democracy and how it can renew itself in a post-Trump age. Former FT Editor Lionel Barber presents an authoritative institutional portrait of the Treasury, asking whether it is fit for purpose for Tomorrow′s Economy. Climate change is a problem that goes Beyond Borders, and nature writer Cal Flyn makes the case for a different kind of climate writing. Ten years on from the Arab Spring, the great hope remains in Tunisia. As Layli Foroudi reports from the country, though, true freedom requires Eternal Vigilance.

Plus: Philip Ball on why you should trust the Covid-19 vaccine. Alan Rusbridger and Pippa Crerar debate whether journalists rely too much on anonymous sources. Prospect continues its commitment to thoughtful writing in arts and ideas in Critical Thinking—Ferdinand Mount admires the remarkable journey of Barack Obama, Sameer Rahim reports on his year as a Booker judge and Freya Johnston salutes Sylvia Plath′s poetic genius.
