This is the updated version of the popular 1984 version of Fryers ‘staying power’. Staying Power is recognised as the definitive history of black people in Britain, an epic story that begins with the Roman conquest and continues to this day.
In a comprehensive account, Peter Fryer reveals how Africans, Asians and their descendants, previously hidden from history, have profoundly influenced and shaped events in Britain over the course of the last two thousand years.
This new edition includes a foreword by Paul Gilroy explaining the genesis of the book and its continuing significance in black history today.
