The immigration debate in the UK is, like in so many countries around the world, not known for its nuance. Charged with racism and the fear of ‘otherness’, it seems that a nation that was built on immigration should be better than this.

Monocle’s Steve Bloomfield is joined by the book’s editor Nikesh Shukla and one of its essayists Musa Okwonga.
