He is a most unlikely revolutionary: a middle-aged, middle-class former grammar schoolboy who honed his radicalism on the mean streets of rural Shropshire. Last summer, this little-known outsider rode a wave of popular enthusiasm to win the Labour Party leadership by a landslide, with a greater mandate than any British political leader before him.

One year on, as Corbyn struggles to retain his grip on the leadership amid open revolt from his own MPs, this new edition of the critically acclaimed biography brings the Jeremy Corbyn story fully up to date, setting out how this very British iconoclast managed to snatch the leadership of a party he spent forty years rebelling against ... and how the party has rebelled against him in turn.

Engaging, clear-sighted and above all revealing, Comrade Corbyn explores the extraordinary story of the most unexpected leader in modern British politics.

Review:

"Rosa Prince's explosive new biography reveals why the Labour leader has not changed with the times." -- The Telegraph"Comprehensive and forensic." -- Progress

"A clear, well-researched and fair-minded account." -- Daily Mail

"[Rosa Prince] has described in extraordinarily close detail exactly how, methodologically, it happened that Corbyn became leader." -- David Sexton, Evening Standard

"An affectionate portrait of a man that Prince obviously thinks has landed himself in the wrong job." -- The Independent

(An) engaging and accomplished analysis." -- Jason Cowley, Sunday Times

Prince has produced a well- researched and balanced account of the rise of this most unlikely politician." -- The Spectator

"Fascinating and forensic - a real insight into the making of Labour's accidental leader. Meticulously researched and always even-handed, this is a very human portrait of a figure who has become a byword for controversy. Essential reading for anyone who follows politics." --Mary Riddell, Daily Telegraph

"Comrade Corbyn is a real political thriller with a revolutionary ending. This is British politics' most incredible political journey. Ever." --Kevin Maguire, Daily Mirror

"An accomplished study and the most lucid explanation yet of the Labour Party's present state." --New Statesman

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Jeremy Corbyn is the most unlikely revolutionary: a middle-aged, middle-class former grammar schoolboy, who honed his radicalism on the mean streets of rural Shropshire. Until recently, he was barely known outside political circles, yet today he is the leader of the Labour Party having won by a landslide, riding a wave of popular enthusiasm. When he was first persuaded to run, not even Corbyn himself dreamed he would somehow tap into a summer 2015 zeitgeist, an unforeseen populist fervour for change. From Corbyn's cosy rural upbringing, through three marriages - including his decision to divorce one wife for sending their son to grammar school - and his long espousal of contentions causes, including Irish republicanism and a free Palestine, Comrade Jeremy is the story of the most unexpected leadership contest ever to take place in modern British politics.Read more in this terrific review in the Sydney Morning Herald The fully updated paperback edition of the first comprehensive biography to be published in the wake of Corbyn's election to leader of the Labour Party, with additional material, including the story of his first year as leader, and his relationship with rebellious Labour back benchers.
