Questionable Judgement - Poor,
By A Customer
This review is from: Patriots: National Identity in Britain 1940-2000 (Hardcover)
Don't waste time and money reading this. Weight's arguments are often unsubstantiated and too frequently incorrect. Its typical of those studies' that seek to push a political line rather than explain facts and events through constructive and objective analysis.
Weight might do worse than reconsider the existence of a "British" conciousness. Has it as he quotes, "virtually disappeared"? If the Queen's Jubilee is anything to go by - its decline is more imaginary than fact.
