With a socialist Labour government a real near-term possibility, In Our Own Hands both analyses how the British left came to stand on the cusp of power and assesses the challenges ahead.

After decades in which socialism was confined to the outer margins of British public life, Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party has returned socialist ideas to the heart of political debate. Corbynism’s shock emergence, from a place of tremendous political weakness, is key to understanding its potential as well as the immense challenges it faces. Following forty years of accommodation to neoliberalism, the Labourism of yesteryear - ultimately, a politics of dignified subordination to the prerogatives of capitalism - is dead. The question Corbynism needs to address now is what replaces it. It may not have much time in which to provide an answer.

The promise of Corbynism, as analysed in the book, involves the development and sharpening of popular needs, capacities and demands throughout society - including the taking and use of state power, as well as the building of counter-power from below.

The reality of a socialist Labour government is now closer than ever, with Labour the biggest political party in the UK in terms of members and gaining its highest vote share in 2017 since 1970.

Offers a unique take on the Corbyn project - looking not at the man himself but his policies and “Corbynism” as a wider political movement, demonstrating how it will be challenged and how it can be adapted.

Both authors are founding editors of New Socialist, and are involved in political campaigning for the Labour Party and other left-wing causes.

With Corbyn & his politics still a topic of much debate in the British media, we anticipate opportunities for the authors to develop profiles as commentators. Promotion will include a UK-wide speaking tour, both public events and local Labour party/ other political groups. Events at Labour party conference and The World Transformed. Reviews, features and op eds across the political press.
