In February 2007, we asked people from any background to send us their true personal accounts of immigration to Britain. The response was significant, and the range of entries overwhelming. Six judges – including Shami Chakrabarti of Liberty and the novelist Kate Mosse – selected the best, most illuminating and most powerful entries to be published in this book.
The result is the widest-reaching contemporary survey of the immigrant experience published in many years. In these pages you’ll discover sixteen very different voices, each one presenting a very different point of view. In taking us around the world, each account shows a new side to the most complicated journey of all: finding a place to call home.
