Product description

Review

This remarkable book shines the brightest of lights into some of the darkest and most misunderstood corners of our shared history. As urgent as it is illuminating, Sanghera drives a coach and horses through the ludicrous but increasingly popular notion that wanting a proper public understanding of all aspects of British and Imperial history is somehow unpatriotic or 'anti-British'. A quite beautiful writer, with a deep personal investment in the subject matter, his meticulous research and passionate advocacy combine to create an irresistible case for reviewing much of what we think we know about the reality and legacy of the British Empire ― James O'Brien

Could not be more enjoyable, engaging or movingObserver on ‘The Boy with the Topknot’

I absolutely loved it. Heartbreaking and wonderful. He writes beautifully ― Maggie O'Farrell on ‘The Boy with the Topknot’

Tragic, funny and disturbing. It will challenge you, and may even change youIndependent on ‘The Boy with the Topknot’

Gripping and entertaining, horrifying and tender . . . Exposes all those things we take for granted as we grow up ― The Times on ‘The Boy with the Topknot’

In this witty and multi-faceted portrait of our national, the award-winning journalist and novelist looks with great acuity at how the Empire wrought contemporary Britain ― Bookseller

Lucid but never simplistic; entertaining but never frivolous; intensely readable while always mindful of nuance and complexity - Empireland takes a perfectly-judged approach to its contentious but necessary subjectJonathan Coe
