Summary
"Drawing upon historical, literary, cultural and anthropological approaches, this book examines the sources of cultural identity in Britain in the twentieth century and how these were shaped through the influences of family, education, and everyday 'high' and 'low' culture." "This study will be of interest to scholars of sociology, cultural studies, literary studies and history who are particularly interested in 'race', race relations, immigration and cultural difference."--BOOK JACKET
