Harrogate, North Yorkshire

People are angry. Britain votes Brexit, Trump promises a wall. From the far left to the far right, Steve Richards delivers the most captivating account of the defining political phenomenon of the decade: the rise of the outsiders. Mainstream politics has lost its way and Steve Richards has delivered the perfect book to explain why. From Corbynistas to Ukippers, his insightful observations chart the rise of the political mavericks who are forcing us to rethink the unthinkable. This is a talk no politically engaged reader can afford to miss.

Steve Richards is a political columnist, journalist, and presenter. He presents Week in Westminster on BBC Radio Four among other programmes on BBC Radio and Television.
