When Ugandan President Idi Amin expelled the country's entire Asian population in 1972, more than 28,000 people from Britain's former colony arrived on airstrips around the country and began building new lives - but their incredible stories remained largely hidden. Fifty years later, first and second-generation testimony uncovers an under-explored period of history, touching on colonialism, immigration, identity and modern multiculturalism through the lens of individual experience.

The Exiled: Empire, immigration and how Ugandan Asians changed Britain will be a narrative history with memoir elements, collating first-person experiences of the exodus from Uganda and the global resettlement.
Drawing on first-hand interviews and informed by Lucy's personal experience, the book uncovers untold stories of resilience and illuminates an essential chapter in British history, in which immigrants reshaped society. It weaves together diverse immigrant stories - including the author's family's - to give a fresh understanding of this period's legacy.

These are untold stories from a hidden period of history, which challenge broader assumptions about migration and identity within the framework of the UK today.
