Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A fresh perspective on British history from award-winning broadcaster Fatima Manji



Deep within the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, where British foreign policy is shaped and enacted, is an ornate central chamber: the Durbar Court. In a grand house off Hyde Park, the eighteenth-century sword of an Indian Sultan lies amidst tapestries and oil paintings. For around twenty years a Turkish mosque stood proudly in Kew gardens, completed in 1761 at the behest of the Dowager Princess of Wales.



Throughout Britain's galleries and museums, civic buildings and stately home, relics can be found that point to a more complex national history than has more recently been remembered. These objects, lost, concealed or simply overlooked, expose the misconceptions around modern immigration narratives and the perhaps surprising diversity of pre-20th-century Britain.



Eschewing explicit politicisation, Manji travels through "the very meccas of Britishness" in search of a richer and more complex story of her own heritage and our wider national narrative about identity and the legacy of empire.

Fatima Manji is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist who anchors the UK's Channel 4 News, the nation's most popular adversarial nightly news programme. She reports on major national and international stories, and is best known for breaking stories with a global impact: including the tale of Saudi princesses held hostage for years by their father the King; giving voice to the heart-rending testimonies of internally displaced Iraqis fleeing ISIS; investigating an MI5 spy accused of entrapment in Northern Ireland; and tracing the perilous journey of victims of war across the Hungarian border in the face of rising anti-migrant extremism.
