I Should Know That: Great Britain covers a range of key topics on our fair land, including essential British history (Magna Carta, the Great Reform Act etc.), the current political and legal system (when can a magistrate decide whether a person is guilty or innocent?), migration to Britain, women's rights (when did married women gain the right to retain ownership of money and property?), geography (what's the distance between John O' Groats and Land's End?), and culture (who wrote 'Rule, Britannia!' etc...).
The subjects and questions are inspired by the UK citizenship test and the book also includes the hilarious, though unfortunate, gaffes frequently made by our politicians. A book for anyone who wishes that they were more informed citizens.
