Left Book Club

This series revives the ethos of the original Left Book Club active in the UK during the 1930s and 1940s. It grew to resist the tide of austerity and appeasement, and presented radical ideas for social change. The club was about enlightenment, empowerment and collective organisation. These new books do the same for readers in the twenty-first century. Tackling the destruction of the welfare state, the housing crisis, radical history, music and revolt amongst many other ideas, each book is chosen to uncover and explore the myriad issues we face today, and to bring us together through reading and debate.
