Prospect Magazine

10 issues per year Write Review From £4.00 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  |  June 2020  


In Prospect's June issue: Where do we stand on Covid-19? And how on earth do we get out? In this issue of Prospect, we have something to say in answer to both questions. We invite esteemed historian Margaret MacMillan to paint a panoramic picture of the fallout from seven centuries of catastrophes—from the Black Death to the financial crisis. Economist Dani Rodrik picks up the challenge of President Macron’s recent remarks about the need to reconfigure globalisation. He asks what a new world order would look like if it were built on public health, climate, even human rights. We set Stephen Buranyi to work to find out what the Germans have got right on the testing and tracing front, and the obstacles the UK faces in emulating their success. And what of Sweden’s big gamble? The jury is still out. Also in the magazine, a profile of Booker-winning novelist Bernardine Evaristo, James Graham on parliament in the age of Zoom and Ferdinand Mount on whether Machiavelli was mad, bad or just not very original.

"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
