In 2017 Jeremy Corbyn surprised everyone, including his own supporters, by depriving Theresa May of her majority. Two years on, with May forced out, Boris Johnson in, and a dramatic constitutional crisis over Brexit, the country is likely to be facing another general election within a matter of months.
Bringing together a diverse range of thinkers, writers and activists, Corbynism from Below charts how a bottom-up Labour campaign can beat Johnson and Farage by building a popular opposition to the rising tide of right-wing populism. Both a rallying cry and a practical primer for victory, the book forensically outlines the shifting vote patterns that Labour needs to navigate, and the alliance building it must engage in, to win what promises to be the most momentous election in decades.
Unafraid to face up to the limits of Corbynism, while enthusiastic about the possibilities of a Labour victory, Corbynism from Below offers an account of how the Labour Party can win, and the kind of transformation we would see under a Corbyn government.
