Summary
"What kind of people are 'the English' - what are the characteristic traits and behaviour that distinguish them from other people? This wide-ranging book traces the varied history of ideas amongst the English about their own 'national character' over the past two centuries. One of the leading historians of modern Britain challenges long-held assumptions and familiar stereotypes and offers an entirely new perspective on what it means to think of oneself as being English."--BOOK JACKET
