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 edition includes a foreword by Paul Gilroy explaining the genesis of the book and its continuing significance in black history today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'For this retrieval of the lost histories of black Britain Mr Fryer has my deep gratitude. An invaluable book, which manages the rare feat of combining scholarship with readability' -- Salman Rushdie
'A fascinating account of the growth of the black community in Britain over the past centuries' -- Guardian
'Rare in its mastery of the constant historical contradiction: range and at the same time event. Two thousand years is a long time; Fryer never loses his grip in time or place' -- CLR James
