New Statesman editor Jason Cowley is one of the most influential journalists in Britain. His new book, Reaching for Utopia, brings together insightful essays and profiles chronicling the remarkable political and cultural transformations of the last decade – from the fall of Blair to the rise of Corbyn and Brexit.
Sky News political correspondent Lewis Goodall’s Left for Dead: The Strange Death and Rebirth of Labour Britain is a timely and provocative account of the fall of New Labour, the rise of Corbyn, and what it means for the Left in Britain.
Join Jason and Lewis as they discuss one of the most turbulent periods in UK political history, and attempt to make sense of the forces driving this age of upheaval.
Chaired by Professor Tanja Bueltmann, Northumbria University
