5.0 out of 5 stars Concerning, 19 July 2007
This review is from: The Radical Right in Britain (British History in Perspective) (Paperback)
Like the other reviewers, I have never read Sykes' book but feel compelled to intervene over their absurdities. It is of great concern that an academic study of an important historical issue is being sabotaged by whatever perculiar right-wing sect has targeted 'The Radical Right in Britian', published by an imprint know for their quality of modern research. (It is laughable though... can they really have expected to have looked like anything other than an orchestrated and agressive political mob?) Such lack of education, no doubt aggravited by whatever strange cult-like leaders they adhere to, is seriously damaging for publci understanding. It is a FACT that British Nationalism has utilised St George's Cross and emblems of supposed 'Englishness'. There is no dispute. A British nationalist almost invariably understands the British Union as a rightful imposition of a culture originating from England. There are no pictures of Welsh nationalists on the cover because they have never been involved in British nationalism. It is furthermore almost impossible to imagine an English nationalism contingent and seperate from a British nationalism in todays world, since any concept of an English 'race' or 'people' would be even more couched in myth and ahistorical understanding than conventional nationalism already is. What could the 'English race' possibly be?

I encourage all who read this actively to counter and check such dangerous and damaging assertations and to protect enquiery and historical knowledge,

Quite right. Typical far right stupidity: they all (assuming it is more than one, and not just a series of sockpuppets for the same guy) post pretty much verbatim the same review, without mentioning any other aspect of the book, and expect us to believe they're posting independently! Dumb as bricks.
