Prospect Magazine

10 issues per year View Reviews   |   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  |  August 2016  


In Prospect’s August issue: Rachel Sylvester argues that the EU referendum has started a re-alignment of British politics while Roger Scruton and Jay Elwes say that it has thrown Britain into a bout of self-examination with the fundamental question of who we are as a nation at its centre. In addition, Peter Mandelson says without reform the EU could fall victim to a populist uprising.

Also in this issue: Philip Ball explores quantum entanglement, George Magnus looks at the political situation in Brazil ahead of the Olympics and Adam Mars-Jones unpicks the work of Steven Spielberg. James Cusick looks at the impact of the Chilcot report and Kathy Lette explains what the world would be like if she was in charge.

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
