From the moment Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader, Corbynism has been dismissed, derided or romanticised, but rarely taken seriously as a set of ideas on its own terms. This book critically outlines the shared understanding of capitalism and its alternatives that unites the component parts of the Corbyn movement. It decodes the central tenets of the Corbynist worldview, showing their coherence with contemporary political-economic shifts and conspiratorial understandings of global capitalism as a ¿rigged system' common to populist nativism in an age of Trump and Brexit.

"This book is much needed . . . it cuts through the fog of uncritical adulation
and unthinking hostility toward Jeremy Corbyn to shine a light on the origins
and dynamics of this often misunderstood part of modern British politics." -- Professor Paul Thompson "Using Marxist critical theory, this timely and courageous book analyses Corbyn's left populism as significantly diverging from the key traditions of the class struggle and democratic left." -- Dr David Hirsh * University of London *
