Sarfraz Manzoor was two years old when his family emigrated from Pakistan to join his father in Bury Park, Luton. His teenage years were a constant battle to reconcile being both British and Muslim. But when his best friend introduced him to Bruce Springsteen, his life changed for ever. In this affectionate and timely memoir, Manzoor retraces his journey from the frustrations of his childhood to his reaction to the tragedies of 9/11 and 7/7. Original, darkly tender and wryly amusing, this is an inspiring tribute to the power of music to transcend race and religion and a moving account of a relationship between father and son

Britain is divided. In the last ten years there has been a rise both in Islamist radicalism and far-right extremism. Across Europe, anti-Muslim attitudes have moved from the fringe towards near-acceptability, evidenced in this country by the comments from Boris Johnson on the niqab and the journey of Tommy Robinson from football thug to advisor to UKIP. The narrative from both hard-line Muslims and the far right is the same: Muslims and non-Muslims cannot and should not live together, because they are not us. In They, acclaimed writer Sarfraz Manzoor will confront head-on what critics say about Muslims and will explore, through nine major themes, whether their accusations have any credence. Visiting the towns and cities in Britain most notorious for race riots, segregation, jihadism and child sex exploitation, Sarfraz will talk with those who we usually don't hear from - the lived experiences of radicalism, forced marriage and sexual exploitation - and will search for the people and stories that offer a glimpse of hope that things can change for the better. Personal, controversial and enduringly hopeful, They will offer a fresh vision of how to build a more united kingdom, tackling head-on as it does many of the most pressing issues of our age.

May 2009 will be the tenth anniversary of the first elections to the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly. This was the beginning of a decade of change - which now includes the restoration of powers to Stormont - that is showing every sign of being an irreversible process. Breaking Up Britain is a unique collection of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish contributors, featuring key political activists from the nationalist parties, commentators and campaigners, academics and journalists. Each writer explores the change that the break-up demands in their own nation, but also discusses its impact upon the whole. This dialogue of differences is essential reading for anyone interested in the shape of politics and culture after a Union. 'This brilliant book helps us understand what Scots, Welsh, Irish and English neighbours, freed from an unhappy Union, might look like.' Billy Bragg
