Prospect Book Club – David Lammy
Why has tribalism in politics become so pervasive in recent years? Have we ignored for too long the essential human need to belong?
What about the culture war launched by Brexit? David Lammy seeks to answer these questions in his new book Tribes, part memoir, part call-to-arms. Lammy, the first black Briton to study at Harvard and Labour MP for Tottenham since 2000 (who is currently fighting his 6th general election), has become one of parliament’s most vocal and effective campaigners on issues such as the Windrush scandal and help for victims of the Grenfell fire. After writing perceptively on the 2011 riots, he returns with a fascinating account of how people can learn to live with difference.
