Product description

Review

This is a sane, witty and shrewd picture of British identityneither cynical nor paranoid, which is quite an achievement. Chris Parish sketches very skilfully the history and habits that make up this many-layered identity and gives us some essential tools for working out what we can properly celebrate, what we should properly regret and what we might reasonably hope forwhat a mature sense of national self-esteem might look like. --Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, theologian, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge

About the Author

Chris Parish is passionate about British culture and identity, having spent years studying the subject. He directed a UK charity for over two decades and is an accomplished speaker on human development.
