Empireland

£9.99

EMPIRE explains why there are millions of Britons living worldwide.

EMPIRE explains Brexit and the feeling that we are exceptional.

EMPIRE explains our distrust of cleverness.

EMPIRE explains Britain’s particular brand of racism. Strangely hidden from view, the British Empire remains a subject of both shame and glorification. In his bestselling book, Sathnam Sanghera shows how our imperial past is everywhere: from how we live and think to the foundation of the NHS and even our response to the COVID-19 crisis.

At a time of great division, when we are arguing about what it means to be British, Empireland is a groundbreaking revelation – a much-needed and enlightening portrait of contemporary British society, shining a light on everything that usually gets left unsaid.
