    Review quote
    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 cliches. 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
