Kamal Ahmed's childhood was very "British" in every way - except for the fact that he was brown. Half English, half Sudanese, he was raised in 1970s London at a time when being mixed-race meant being told to go home, even when you were born just down the road. Kamal makes the case for a new conversation about race in Britain through personal stories, political analysis, and a passionate belief in the ultimate good of this country. This is a modern commentary from a man who adopted the name Neil growing up (it was better than "camel") and went on to occupy one of the most elite positions in the British establishment. It is also a call to recognise that this very British mix is the foundation for the country as we know it.
