Prospect Magazine

10 issues per year View Reviews   |   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  |  Aug/Sept 21  


In Prospect's 300th issue: In our special Summer Double issue, Prospect presents 50 Thinkers to Rebuild the World, ranging from vaccine-makers to tech innovators. Read the list, vote for your favourite—and tell us who we missed. Andrew Adonis profiles Boris Johnson and the school that made him who he is. James Hawes and Sunder Katwala tackle English identity and racism. "What is a woman?" is a more difficult question to answer than you might think, says Angela Saini. Ann Pettifor warns us about the perils of quantitative easing and Stephen Wertheim argues that 9/11 delayed inevitable questions about America's declining power. Peter Singer and Cal Flyn debate whether we should ban meat.

Plus: Antonia Cundy on the battle raging inside the Imperial War Museum, Amia Srinivasan develops a philosophy of pornography, Ferdinand Mount enjoys the charmed life of Amartya Sen and Ali Smith tells us why her role model is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

"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
