Product description


Well-written, thoughtful and exhaustively researched, his volume will come to be regarded as one of the most important contributions to political debate in the early 21st century... By writing his exceptionally important book he has played a major role in helping Britain end our long, unhealthy period of silence about a great issue which is certain to fundamentally shape our national future. --Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph

The British Dream is an important contribution to any durable 'one nation' politics... I hope the book will be widely read --Jon Cruddas, New Statesman

Intelligent and well-reasoned --Rod Liddle, Sunday Times

An important study of postwar immigration into the UK --Sir Michael Howard, Spectator

This is an important book, and it throws up complex questions --Patrick French, Mail on Sunday

There is a risk in saying such things about immigration. One closes Goodhart's book, though, believing there is a bigger risk in not saying them. --Christopher Caldwell, Financial Times

A fluent and thoughtful contribution --Oliver Kamm, The Times

Finally: a European liberal who isn't afraid of his own shadow and a British intellectual who isn't allergic to evidence... No intelligent person can afford not to read this book. --Trevor Phillips, former Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission

Like a latter-day George Orwell, David Goodhart penetrates the fog of delusion and wishful thinking surrounding the issues of race, immigration, multiculturalism and national identity. Goodhart has written a hard-headed but also an optimistic book. --Frank Field, MP

You won't agree with everything he says, but he has made himself the starting point for a vital debate at the centre of British and European politics. --Michael Ignatieff, Professor, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Immigration is one of the most important issues facing Britain today... David Goodhart never settles for the conventional wisdom. This book is the best guide yet to one of the hottest topics in British politics. --The Rt Hon David Willetts, MP, Minister of State for Universities and Science
