Happy Publication Day to writer and author Sathnam Sanghera! You can buy Empireland from UK Bookshop or from Amazon.

Here's what he says about it: "I am not a historian, and this is not a history book. Rather, it is a book about how history has shaped contemporary Britain."

"It’s impossible to discuss British empire in the 21st Century, or even admit to ignorance or curiosity about it, without getting dragged into a binary consideration of whether it was “good” or “bad”. This is a stupid way of looking at the past: to read history as a series of events that instil pride and shame. I wanted to break away from this attitude and instead look at the effect of this vital part of our history on this country."
