Featuring exclusive content from well-known voices from around the world, the continent and South Africa, these social, cultural, economic and political thinkers share their unique perspectives on how our world and our lives may change in the coming year and beyond.

It’s the first time the New York Times has partnered with a sub-Saharan publication, selecting the M&G above all others to bring their premium, agenda setting content to South Africa.

This year’s line-up includes perspectives from internationally recognised contributors such as Julian Assange, Mandla Langa, Margaret Atwood, Taiye Selasi, Mark Gevisser, Siri Hustvedt, Zhang Xin and Njabulo Ndebele. But you’ll also find a look at the year ahead with our Global Agenda, what was new and noted in 2014 with our First Time Ever and an outstanding collection of The Year in Photos, among others.
