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.
In Prospect’s June issue: Steve Bloomfield and Elinor Goodman explore Britain’s populist moment. Bloomfield argues that nationalism is on the rise around the world and we could soon see a demagogue in No 10. Goodman argues that rural England provides fertile ground for the Brexiteer right.
Elsewhere in the issue: Oliver Bullough investigates Britain’s efforts to reduce the amount of illegal money flowing between accounts, discovering that an office created under Henry VIII is at the frontline. Julia Blunck charts the decline of the Brazilian Amazon and suggests that with Bolsonaro in power, we might be on the verge of an environmental catastrophe. Also, Isabel Hilton explores the global impact of Maoism and Clive James finds that lovely words count more and more in his latest column.
A British Trump?; wages of sin; the world’s next environmental catastrophe
