Leading journalist and commentator Yasmin Alibhai-Brown takes a fresh look at what ‘Englishness’ is. Alibhai-Brown traces the English appetite for adventure and curiosity that has seen the English travel the globe, soak up new experiences and ideas and weave them into every aspect of life back home. Alibhai-Brown explains how this curiosity has shaped English buildings, food and culture and powered its economy.

Alibhai-Brown is one of the UK’s leading commentators on race, multiculturalism and human rights. She is an award-winning journalist who writes for national newspapers and is often seen and heard on television and radio. She won the George Orwell Prize for political journalism in 2002 and the Emma Award for journalism in 2004. Alibhai-Brown is also author of No Place Like Home, the acclaimed The Settlers’ Cookbook: A Memoir of Migration, Love and Food and Who Do We Think Are? Imagining the New Britain.
