Abstract

The crisis of neoliberalism and the associated austerity politics generated a global wave of protests which in turn has produced a renewed interest amongst activists and academics for political parties as means of expressing social movements and addressing their limitations in delivering an alternative project. Three new books, Crowds and Party, Movement Parties against Austerity, and Corbyn: The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics offer useful insights for how to consider fruitfully the relationship between social movements and parties.
