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.

The government′s obsession with flying the Union flag is not mere innocent patriotism, argues Chris Mullin. It shows a sinister turn towards a hardline nationalism that should worry us all. Something similar has already happened in Poland, reports Christian Davies, which is rejecting the western values it once embraced after the fall of communism. Things are hardly rosy in the EU right now, as Andrew Adonis elucidates in his profile of the Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, a second-rate first lady. Helen Thompson argues that on Brexit the liberal left never understood that popular sovereignty could only be ignored for so long.

Also in the magazine: we interview Michael Lewis on what America got wrong on Covid-19 and Jacqueline Rose on the violence at the heart of everyday life. Peter Frankopan reviews Niall Ferguson’s Doom and Miranda France tells us why Rachel Cusk is our finest writer of autofiction. Plus: in time for summer, in praise of wasps and the jellyfish that can live forever.
