      Since Jeremy Corbyn’s initial election as leader of the Labour Party in July , the hundreds of thousands of people who have flocked into the party have been treated to something of a crash course on its culture, its organisation, its methods and, not least, the very substantial political differences contained within it.

      “Corbyn: The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics is the fullest and fairest account of Jeremy Corbyn’s rise released to date. In avoiding much of the rhetoric espoused in similar accounts focusing on Corbyn’s early career this book provides a frank account of how the unlikely leader took charge of the Labour party. Thorpe's book has established itself as the best single-volume study of the whole of the Labour party's history. Now thoroughly updated in the light of ongoing historiographical debates, this third edition brings the story up to the present with new and revised chapters on the development of 'New Labour' and the previous Blair government.
