This week’s cover: What does China want? As our essay explains, it craves the respect it enjoyed in centuries past, but it does not know how to achieve or deserve it. Our cover leader asks how the United States should respond to a rising power which is unhappy with Pax Americana in its own region. Even in security, we argue, America needs to make more room for China.

Tomorrow’s cover, today: Reluctantly, America is back in Iraq, bombing the extremists of the Islamic State. Some argue that Barack Obama should not be getting entangled in the Mesopotamian mess again, some that he is still being too cautious. Our cover leader argues that his use of modest military force combined with political brinkmanship is the best way of containing the Islamic State while encouraging the formation of a decent government in Baghdad.

Tomorrow’s cover, today: This week we look at the sex business—and the way that technology is making it more like a normal service industry. In our briefing we dissect the data on the prices and services of 190,000 prostitutes around the world. That inevitably involves some fairly explicit charts which not all readers will appreciate. In our cover leader we argue that the internet is making the buying and selling of sex easier and safer—and governments should stop trying to ban it.

Tomorrow’s cover, today: Israel is winning the battle in Gaza, but it is losing the war for world opinion and long-term security. Public opinion in Europe and emerging countries is hostile to Israel and even in America only a quarter of young people support it. As our cover leader argues, that matters, not just because Israel is an open trading nation that depends on America for its security, but also because some of the foreign criticism—especially on its current approach to peace negotiations—is right.

Tomorrow’s cover, today: Vladimir Putin’s epic deceits have entangled not just his own country but increasingly the West too. The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has added a cluster of spectacular new falsehoods. Our cover leader argues that this is the moment to say enough.

Tomorrow’s cover, today: America’s long-term growth rate is barely half what it was two decades ago. Some of the reasons for that—such as an ageing population—are unavoidable. But our cover leader argues that plenty—such as regulation, immigration, taxation—are within politicians’ control and could be fixed

This week’s cover: A 307-year-old union, which once ruled a third of humanity and still serves as a role-model to many, could be on the verge of dissolution. The people of Scotland will soon vote on independence. Our cover leader explains why we hope that the Scots will decide to stay in the United Kingdom.

In April 2012 we produced a cover on 3D printing entitled “The third industrial revolution” it inspired Kae Woei Lim, a designer at XYZ Workshop, to actually recreate it in three dimensions. The results are superb. 

Tomorrow’s cover today: This week our cover looks at the tragedy of the Arabs. A thousand years ago, the great cities of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo took turns to race ahead of the Western world. Back then, Islam and innovation were twins. Now the Arabs are in a wretched state, a civilisation in ruins—and the only people who can rebuild it are the Arabs themselves.

Tomorrow’s cover today: This week we split our cover. In Asia we look at Shinzo Abe’s "third arrow" of economic reform. In the rest of the world, we look at the future of the university. A cost crisis, changing labour markets and new technology will turn an old institution on its head.

This week’s cover: Twenty years ago, Jeff Bezos left his job in finance and drove to Seattle to set up a new firm, which he named after a giant river to reflect the scale of his ambitions. Since then Amazon has changed the way that the world shops and upended industries. But, as our cover leader warns, it must be careful not to become a bully.

Tomorrow’s cover today: ISIS, the group that has captured Mosul in Iraq, is more violent than mainstream Syrian rebels and more extreme than al-Qaeda. It wants to set up a state in the territory it has captured in Iraq and Syria. Worryingly, it may succeed

Tomorrow’s cover today: nearly 1 billion people have been taken out of extreme poverty in 20 years. The world should aim to do the same again.
