99 Immigrants Who Made Britain Great by Louis Stewart, foreword by Bonnie Greer
It is time to celebrate the achievements of immigrants who have made a new life in Britain. From Hans Holbein to Tessa Sanderson, Freddie Mercury to Judith Kerr, and Harry Selfridge to Kylie Minogue, they deserve a big round of applause.
Many arrived broke, knowing little English. They achieved success by overcoming obstacles and working hard. And their legacies are still with us. Alec Issigonis designed the Mini car, while Henry Wellcome funded British science.
Without Michael Marks, we would not have Marks & Spencer. Without Ludwig Guttmann, there would be no Paralympics.
This beautiful illustrated book tells the stories 99 inspiring incomers. Optional extra: there is space for readers to add a 100th person - perhaps a mother, father, uncle, aunt, friend, or workmate?
