About This Show
Each month editor Tom Clark welcomes to the programme three contributors from Prospect magazine. We commission pieces which challenge you to think differently, and we’ll also be encouraging our writers to challenge each other, as they stress-test each other’s arguments in the studio.

Headspace #33—Planet China
4 days ago
China is the new great global power. But while much has been said about China’s economic and military heft, what about the rise of Chinese ideas? As Beijing grows increasingly dominant we will have to decide how firmly we hold western values of academic freedom and human rights: they will increasingly be challenged.
Tom Clark is joined by Isabel Hilton, who has written an essay on China for our new issue, Kerry Brown, who examines how Australia is dealing with China’s rise, and Rana Mitter who discusses great thinkers of China’s past.
