Defying all expectations, Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour Leader with a resounding mandate. His campaign re-wrote the rules of British politics by mobilising tens of thousands of supporters both within and outside the Party. The 'Corbyn for Leader' campaign, a radical social movement reflecting aspects of the new left across Europe, and Corbyn's ultimate victory provide the rarest of opportunities to redefine the Labour Party and socialism for a new generation. 

Corbyn's Campaign tells the story of Jeremy's victory and articulates the opportunities for a renewal of socialism in Britain. Contributors were active - at both national and local levels - throughout the leadership campaign, and continue to be so as a new politics unfolds.
