For over 1500 years before the Empire Windrush docked on British shores, people of African descenthave played a significant and far-ranging role in the country's history, fromthe African soldiers on Hadrian's Wall to the Black British intellectuals whomade London a hub of radical, Pan-African ideas.

But while there has been agrowing interest in this history, there has been little recognition of thesheer breadth and diversity of the Black British experience, until now. This collection combines thelatest work from both established and emerging scholars of Black British history.

An invaluable resource for both future scholarship and thoselooking for a useful introduction to Black British history, Black British History: New Perspectives has the potentialto transform our understanding of Britain, and of its place inthe world.
