Review

Kate Fox's brilliant idea is to treat the British as another tribe...where she's particularly astute is in examining the exact pattern of clichés. Any study of the English must cover our class obsession, and Fox deals with the subject thoroughly. (Harry Mount, author of How England Made the English)

An absolutely brilliant examination of English culture. (Jennifer Saunders The Times)

Her observations are acute . . . she doesn't write like an anthropologist but like an English woman - with amusement, not solemnity, able to laugh at herself as well as us. (Daily Mail)

Brilliant and hilarious (Grayson Perry The Vanity of Small Differences)

She is the only popular UK anthropologist of substance since the 1970s. (Jeremy MacClancy Professor of Anthropology, Oxford Brookes University)

This is an entertaining, clever book. Do read it and then pass it on. (Daily Telegraph)

She is smart . . . raises some serious issues . . . poses a challenge to British social anthropology that we need to meet . . . This book should enter into professional discussions of the future of anthropology . . . Fox has astutely lined herself up to take a leading position in a rethink of the discipline's object, theory and method. (Professor Keith Hart Anthropology Today)

I read it cover to cover in a few days . . . very sharp and witty prose. It really is funny - the sort of humour that makes you laugh out loud on your own! (Martin Parr Vice)

Hilarious and insightful (Daniel Miller Professor of Material Culture, University College London)

She has not only compiled a comprehensive list of English qualities, she has examined them in depth . . . A delightful read. (Sunday Times)
