A FINALIST FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING 2023
A FINANCIAL TIMES BEST SUMMER BOOK OF 2023

'Important and ambitious' Observer, Book of the Day

'An illuminating and powerful intersectional analysis of health inequalities and racism' i-D Magazine

'Prepare to be blown away' Chikwe Ihekweazu, Assistant Director General at WHO

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all too aware of the urgent health inequalities that plague our world. But these inequalities have always been urgent: modern medicine has a colonial and racist history.

Here, in an essential and searing account, Annabel Sowemimo unravels the colonial roots of modern medicine. Tackling systemic racism, hidden histories and healthcare myths, Sowemimo recounts her own experiences as a doctor, patient and activist.

Divided exposes the racial biases of medicine that affect our everyday lives and provides an illuminating - and incredibly necessary - insight into how our world works, and who it works for.

This book will reshape how we see health and medicine - forever.

'Outstanding ... beautifully written and erudite, yet highly accessible ... should be mandatory reading for all medical practitioners' Jacqueline Roy, author of The Fat Lady Sings
