About This Event
Britain has often found groups within its borders whom it does not trust, from Catholics to Jews, miners to trade unionists, Marxists to liberals and even homosexuals, all have at times been viewed, described and treated as 'the enemy within'. Muslims are the latest in a long line of 'others' to be given this label. Sayeeda Warsi draws on her own unique position in British life, as the child of Pakistani immigrants, an outsider, who became the UK's first Muslim Cabinet minister, to explore questions of cultural difference, terrorism, surveillance, social justice, religious freedom, integration and the meaning of 'British values'. Uncompromising and outspoken, The Enemy Within is a timely and urgent book. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
