"This book pulls no punches. The path is clear. We have to be brave enough to take it." - Sir Terry Leahy, CEO of Tesco 1997 – 2011

Britain is at a cross-road which will define its place in the world for generations. From the economy, to the education system, to social mobility and social justice, Britain must learn the rules of the 21st century, or we face an inevitable slide into mediocrity.

Presented by a team of rising star MPs of the Conservative party, Britannia Unchained takes us on a journey around the world, to the nations that are triumphing in this new age. Kwasi Kwarteng, Priti Patel, Dominic Raab, Chris Skidmore and Elizabeth Truss reveal global examples for Britain to take onboard including what Canada can teach about paying national debts; how China supports businesses and what Brazilians can teach Britain about risk-taking. By implementing these lessons, Britain can once again triumph in this new age.
