There is no shortage of convicted sex-traffickers in English prisons. Two defendants werejailed for three years and two-and-a-half years respectively last week after running brothels in Surbiton for several years; Michael Dalton and Nikki Chen forced young women to have sex with around 12 men each day to pay off "debts" they ran up when they were trafficked to the UK on false passports.

We all believed in multiculturalism. Didn't we? That was before Islamic fundamentalism was broadcast from British mosques and we got used to seeing a rise in burkhas and blacked- out women on our streets. And what were we to think when our feminist friends celebrated the veil as a symbol of anti-imperialism and a way of turning off predatory males? And how could we remain silent when the Left celebrated the sight of the planes flying into the Twin Towers ? At Ground Zero how could we listen when they dismissed the three thousand murdered office workers, police and fire fighters' deaths with, 'America had it coming!'? And where was their outrage at the Madrid and London bombings? Unable to recognise the war when it came, the Left continued to blame the innocent for being the victims of the jihadist. What if they, what if we, got it wrong?

Pity Andrea Levy. It is not easy to follow up a novel as loved and acclaimed as her Orange Prize-winning Small Island. Not easy, either, to bear the weight of expectation created by becoming one of the UK's most popular black writers, quietly creating a body of work that explores and communicates the Black British experience to a mass audience.

Of all the scores of books that greeted Darwin's double anniversary last year, none matters more than this. Desmond and Moore, already their hero's biographers, now in this triumph of re-interpretation plant the hatred of slavery - and of the science that sought to justify it - at the heart of Darwin's career.
