The Corbyn Effect at Waterstones Lewes

27 September 2017

“Jeremy Corbyn has re-packaged socialism into something essential, something that isn’t archaic as we’ve been told it is for so long. Striving for justice and fairness isn’t a sign of our weakness but the sign of our great strength. That’s The Corbyn Effect and this book explains why.” - Maxine Peake

Mark Perryman discusses his new edited collection, published by Lawrence & Wishart: The Corbyn Effect, in conversation with Jessica Garland and Emily Clarke.

Jessica is a researcher at Sussex University and former senior policy advisor. She has contributed a fascinating chapter to the book on how the Corbyn surge in membership is changing how Labour organises ‘The New Model Labour Party’. Emily Clarke, one of the Lewes delegates to Labour Party Conference, will give an eyewitness account of the debates and Jeremy Corbyn’s speech.
