Prospect has acquired a reputation as the most intelligent magazine of current affairs and cultural debate in Britain. Both challenging and entertaining, the magazine seeks to make complex ideas accessible and enjoyable by commissioning the best writers, editing them vigorously and packaging their work in a well designed and illustrated magazine.
Is Britain broken? In our December issue, Ferdinand Mount charts the ongoing disaster of Brexit—calling it the ripest example of bad governance since the Second World War. Liz Truss championed a radically free-market Brexit: Colin Crouch explains how her neoliberalism brought her down. Tom Clark asks whether postindustrial Sheffield is due a renaissance. Bryony Worthington says nuclear power could be the solution to climate change. Plus: Peter Frankopan on the upsides of the Black Death; Sheila Hancock on snobbery at the BBC; Rowan Williams on Bach, Shakespeare and the wonder of poetry.
