The Battle of Ideas in the Labour Party

The fifth chapter is a detailed investigation of Corbynism. It delves into what it is substantively. Through many interviews and secondary sources, it reveals the main thinkers and who are the chief actors driving it forward. It notes that it is largely defined by what it is not, namely New Labour and neoliberalism, critiquing the previous Labour administration’s accommodation with neoliberalism. However, its advocates deliberately avoid accusations of a lurch back to ‘Old’ Labour and there is an attempt to project a newness to Labour’s thinking; to develop a 21st century socialism.
