    Britain's culture and way of life have been shaped by immigrants. This collection of obituaries from The Times celebrates the lives of 55 newcomers who made their mark in politics, business, art, architecture, literature, music and sport, including figures as diverse as Prince Albert, Karl Marx, Joseph Conrad, Nancy Astor, CLR James, Melanie Klein, Yehudi Menuhin and Basil D'Oliveira. An introduction by the Archbishop of York explores the contribution that immigrants have made to Britain throughout its history.
