Product description


'If you want to understand Corbyn's long march to take control of Labour this is the only book to read. Kogan turns on its head our understanding of Labour's history over the past 50 years. A tour de force' (Robert Peston)

If you want to understand how Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour left turned decades of protest into the once unthinkable - the prospect of power - this is the definitive account. (Nick Robinson)

Protest and Power is a very good book, probably the most even-handed of all the accounts of Corbyn's rise to power ... and definitely the book that best explains Corbyn in the context of the 40-year battle by the left in Labour to seize control of the party (Andrew Sparrow Guardian Politics Live)

A meticulously researched and balanced history by a writer with sources at the highest level across different wings of the party (Rachel Sylvester The Times)

Under the eyes of Kogan's cool, fair-minded intelligence, the struggles of the Labour party go from a pub brawl to an Icelandic saga. New insights, vivid interviews, granular, often objectively funny details, combine to build a portrait of the British left that is both honest and dignifying. (Zoe Williams Guardian)

Protest and Power brilliantly brings to life the political drama of the popular uprising that is Corbyn's Labour party, from its beginnings in the 1970s to the mobilisation of hundreds of thousands by what became Momentum (Jon Lansman Founder of Momentum)

This is a no-nonsense, straightforward account of what has happened within the party over the last four decades - and it's truly thorough. You'll get to the bottom of each page and think, 'I need to remember every word of this'. Or at least I did (Sienna Rodgers Labour List)

David Kogan combines piercing political insights gained over four decades, strong personal contacts and experience, and rigorous integrity to produce this vital, honest and accessible analysis of the origins and nature of Labour now. (Neil Kinnock)

A tremendously good read and very enlightening, 5 stars (Roger Mosey Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge and former BBC Head of News)

An empirical, balanced and exhaustive account of political conflicts (William Davies The Times)

Book Description
