What’s in a name?

Journalist, academic and ex-TV producer Sheela Banerjee’s fascinating first book is a blend of history, memoir and politics and tells the history of multicultural Britain. In ‘What’s in a Name?’, Sheela tells stories of friends and family through their names and takes us from the fight against racism in Britain to an escape from Nigeria, from Jamaica in the 60s to pre-Revolutionary Russia. Each name contains centuries of history and acts as a portal to other worlds.
