Drawing on her own experiences, wide research and over one hundred interviews, Alibhai-Brown offers a fresh look at such topics as racism, imperialism, immigration and identity politics. Imagining the New Britain offers a startling portrait of the vastly changing face of British citizenship and identity.


"This is a painful, wise and thoughtful book by a fine writer…Alibhai-Brown is totally opposed to injustice and wedded to the ideal of multicultural identity, yet her argument is complex." -- The Independent (London)

"Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is the leading female commentator in the British media…She is a first, highly articulate draft of a new kind of Briton." -- The Observer (London)

"A significant contribution to the conversation about the "new" Britain." -- Times Literary Supplement
