Prospect Magazine Jan/Feb 2021 Back Issue

View Reviews   |   Write Review Only £6.99 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.

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

Issue Cover

Prospect Magazine  |  Jan/Feb 2021  


In Prospect's winter special: Turning the corner into 2021, Prospect has a new cleaner look and a streamlined layout. In this double issue, we are tackling the big themes challenging our world, arranged under four sections. In our opening essay, Timothy Garton Ash outlines the threats to Liberal Democracy and how it can renew itself in a post-Trump age. Former FT Editor Lionel Barber presents an authoritative institutional portrait of the Treasury, asking whether it is fit for purpose for Tomorrow's Economy. Climate change is a problem that goes Beyond Borders, and nature writer Cal Flyn makes the case for a different kind of climate writing. Ten years on from the Arab Spring, the great hope remains Tunisia. As Layli Foroudi reports from the country, though, true freedom requires Eternal Vigilance.

Plus: Philip Ball on why you should trust the Covid-19 vaccine. Alan Rusbridger and Pippa Crerar debate whether journalists rely too much on anonymous sources. Prospect continues its commitment to thoughtful writing in arts and ideas in Critical Thinking—Ferdinand Mount admires the remarkable journey of Barack Obama. Sameer Rahim reports on his year as a Booker judge. And Freya Johnston salutes Sylvia Plath's poetic genius
