Comrade Corbyn

Comrade Corbyn

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. So how did this very British iconoclast manage to snatch the leadership of a party he spent forty years rebelling against? Who is he and where did he come from? And what exactly happened over the space of an extraordinary summer to propel an old lefty called Jeremy to inspire and excite hundreds of thousands of people, and breathe new life into the socialist ideals that he, almost alone, has held true to for so many years?

London's Boroughs at 50

London's Boroughs at 50

On 1 April 1965, a new system of city government is introduced and London's thirty-two boroughs are born, revolutionising the capital into the place we know today. These boroughs and the Greater London Council took control of housing, roads, planning, schools and social services. Half a century on and, though the GLC was abolished in 1986, the boroughs live on, now working alongside a new metropolitan government headed by mayors Ken Livingstone and, since 2008, Boris Johnson. In London's Boroughs at 50, Tony Travers examines the governing system that developed alongside the growing metropolis.

Rab Butler

Rab Butler

Despite his tenure of three of the four Great Offices of State, his popularity with the electorate and the revolutionary 1944 Education Act that bears his name, Richard Austen 'Rab' Butler narrowly missed out on the premiership on three separate occasions. In this insightful biography of the great nearly-man of British politics, Michael Jago looks to answer whether Rab Butler really was 'The Best Prime Minister We Never Had'.
