 About the Book 

This is the first comprehensive history of Black and Asian writers in Britain since the eighteenth century. Utilizing a wealth of new archival material, Lynn Innes examines writers who arrived in England as slaves and whose work later became extremely popular. Innes examines their work as part of an acceptance of and challenge to British cultural and ideological discourses. She reveals a history of vigorous and fertile interaction between Black, Asian and white intellectuals and communities, and offers a rich historical context for understanding contemporary British multicultural society and culture.
