From the publisher

‘ The last few years have seen a plethora of ideas bubbling up from the grassroots movement that underpinned Jeremy Corbyn’s dramatic rise to be leader of the Labour Party. It fills me with hope that this ecosystem of thinkers on the left just keeps growing and growing – and these essays are a hugely important contribution to that.’ -  Sam Tarry MP

In Corbynism from Below, thinkers, writers and activists provide a background of analysis, insight and critique of how Labour was reshaped under Jeremy Corbyn as the party comes to terms with the scale and nature of the 12th December defeat.

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,  Corbyn’s Labour suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Tories.

Bringing together a diverse range of thinkers, writers and activists, Corbynism from Below provides an essential background to coming to terms with that defeat and assessing the enduring viability of Corbyn-era options for Labour’s future.

Unafraid to face up to the limits of Corbynism, while enthusiastic about the possibilities it represented, Corbynism from Below offers an account of how the Labour Party has changed as the party considers the Corbyn legacy and what comes next.
