The Sunday Times Bestseller 'THE BOOK EVERY VOTER MUST READ' Mail on Sunday 'Meticulous and highly readable ...
Funny and devastating' Daily Telegraph 'The most compelling in-depth study so far' Guardian The unmissable expose of Jeremy Corbyn from the UK's most prolific investigative biographer. Since his surprise election as leader of the Labour Party in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn has survived coup attempts and accusations of incompetence that would have felled most politicians, including grave charges of anti-Semitism, bullying and dividing his own party.
Now, as the UK government rips itself apart over Brexit, he stands at the brink of power. Through rigorous research and interviews with those closest to Corbyn - including his two ex-wives - Tom Bower reveals the truths that Jeremy Corbyn has worked to conceal from public scrutiny, as well as tracking the inner workings of the leadership years, including his approach to policy, brand of socialism, and relationships with other MPs. The must-read for every voter, Bower tells the story of Corbyn's political career and life so far - and asks what it would mean for UK politics if he made it into Downing Street.
Is Corbyn a prime minister, or will he prove a dangerous hero?
