During his lifetime, Enoch Powell was one of the most controversial figures in British politics, and that controversy has survived him.

But how should posterity judge Powell's contribution to public life? Michael White, political editor of the Guardian, talks to Powell's allies and opponents and forms his own considered view of what Powell and Powellism has meant for Britain.
