Prospect Magazine October 2021 Back Issue

View Reviews   |   Write Review Only $9.99 The leading magazine of ideas, current affairs and culture

Prospect has established itself as the must-read title for those with a keen interest in politics, economics, history, philosophy, science, literature and the arts. .. read more

Prospect’s depth sets it apart. Each issue brings together the sharpest minds on the events and ideas that define the modern world. What results is an entertaining, informative and open-minded magazine that mixes compelling argument and clear headed analysis with elegance and vitality in design.

As a Prospect reader you will benefit from:

- The big ideas that are shaping our world
- Independent thinking and debate
- In-depth analysis by the world's best writers
- A wide range of opinions, to challenge your own

Prospect delivers cutting-edge and contrarian argument, with recent voices including Nobel Prize-winning economist Angus Deaton and his co-author, Princeton economist Anne Case as well as former cabinet minister and London mayoral candidate Rory Stewart, former Labour leader Ed Miliband and journalist Gaby Hinsliff. Prospect will thrill, and perhaps occasionally, infuriate you.

But it will always challenge you to think again.

"Political writing for grown-ups, well beyond the party political playpen... Europe's outstanding political and cultural monthly"

Andrew Marr, BBC Presenter and Political Commentator

"Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand what's happening, rather than having their prejudices confirmed. Prospect has all the important debates."

Diane Coyle, economist  read less

Issue Cover

Prospect Magazine  |  October 2021  


In Prospect's October issue: Afghanistan has fallen to the Taliban. In the aftermath Anatol Lieven argues that, after 20 years in the country, intervention was ultimately always doomed to fail—and that sets a dangerous precedent for western influence in other parts of the world. With the focus back on the rights of women in the country, Jessica Abrahams asks what a genuine feminist foreign policy might look like. Elsewhere, with the Greens entering government in Scotland for the first time anywhere in the UK, Andrew Gamble asks: might the Green Party be the new progressive force in left wing politics? .. read more Miranda France examines the darkness visible in a new retrospective of works by Portuguese artist Paula Rego, and Freya Johnston reviews Sally Rooney’s highly anticipated third novel. Plus: the winner of this year’s Top Thinkers Award is revealed.  read less
