Prospect Magazine

10 issues per year Write Review From €4.50 per issue 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.

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.

Issue Cover

Prospect Magazine  |  Aug/Sep 2020  


In Prospect's Summer double issue we salute the top 50 world thinkers shaping the age of Covid-19. These are scientists and historians and writers whose work is responding to the shifting contours of the landscape—from the search for the virus, to the battle to save the economy and the explosive movements for justice that have sprung up during lockdown. Readers can vote for their favourite and suggest names we missed.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Miranda France's opening opinion piece argues that we should stay friends with people we disagree with. That is the guiding principle of this issue: we have Sarah Churchwell arguing that the felling of statues is not about destroying the past but challenging the myths of white supremacy; Kenan Malik argues against the efficacy of all identity politics--including white identity politics; Paul Collier chides economists for ignoring the cultural concerns of Britons rooted in long-standing communities; while Chris Mullin write an appreciation of the patriotic Labour Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin.

On the cultural side Will Self tackles the humiliations of Zoom culture; Sam Leith praises the marvels of Marvel and Barbara Speed asks whether foreign holidays are a thing of the past.

Plus a memoir from Sameer Rahim about his time as Saddam Hussein's prisoner and raw new fiction from Gabriel Krauze.

"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
