Left Book Club



What is the Left Book Club?

A subscription book club for radicals. Through reading groups we bring people together to share ideas that will help transform society.

The Left Book Club was started by the pioneering British publisher Victor Gollancz in 1936. Mass membership of the club helped turn the tide of public opinion against fascism and bring the first UK Labour government to power.

Today, we need a Left Book Club for the twenty-first century.
