Issue 119



Monocle’s mammoth December/January double issue features our rundown of the nations winning fans on the world stage, as well as those waiting in the wings – welcome to our Soft Power Survey.

Elsewhere, our Big Interview Series provides Christiane Amanpour’s take on the news, while satirist Bassem Youssef tells us how humour works (or doesn’t) in the Middle East. We also hear what a few choice thinkers, campaigners and a head of state learned this year.

Plus: we hear from the company chefs with deal-sealing potential and a select bunch of prize-winning artists and writers, who describe how their accolades changed their careers. Oh, and can we invite you to bask in the glow of a lovely lakeside residence in Zürich too?
