Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain

Sathnam Sanghera was born to Punjabi immigrant parents in Wolverhampton, England in 1976. He entered the British education system unable to speak English but, after attending Wolverhampton Grammar School, he later graduated from Christ’s College, Cambridge with a first-class degree in English Language and Literature. His third book, Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain demonstrates how so much of what makes up modern Britain is rooted in its (often unexamined) imperial past: from how Britons live, to how they think; from the distrust of intellectuals in public life, to the sense of exceptionalism that lay behind the Brexit campaign.
