'Maria Sobolewska and Robert Ford have produced the best account I have read of our cultural civil wars. The work is not just an explanation of the way we live now, but of how we reached a state of institutionalised rage and why peace will be so hard to find.' Nick Cohen, The Spectator and The Observer
'Brexitland brilliantly unpicks the old and new forces that shaped our brittle political age. Who is exploiting the anger? And is it with us for good? A fascinating and convincing study: essential reading for anyone wanting to understand why tolerance of the other side in British politics seems to have disappeared. How did our political battleground turn so ugly and intolerant? Brexitland delves deep into decades of history and attitudes to race and ethnic identity to answer that question, and does it with style. Sobolewska and Ford have written the new political bible of our times: how did we stop debating and start shouting? Can normal service resume? Brexitland is a razor-sharp and compelling answer to those questions.' Gary Gibbon, Channel 4 News
'A brilliant, original, powerful book. For Remainers, Brexiters or indeed anyone interested in why divided Britain cut itself adrift from the EU, this is unmissable. It is also totally riveting.' Toby Helm, The Observer
'A sharp, accessible investigation of the key fault lines of modern British politics: education, immigration, age and identity.' Helen Lewis, author of Difficult Women
'A brilliant bit of academic research, but written in a way that you or I can understand very easily.' Stephen Bush, Big Issue
'A highly acute and insightful analysis, making telling use of extensive research, which induces the reader to think afresh about the political landscape we now find ourselves in and how we arrived here.' Andrew Rawnsley, The Observer
'A sweeping and rigorous demographic and attitudinal study of recent British history.' William Davies, London Review of Books
