This is an introduction to British "cultural identity" giving the reader an insider's view of the ways in which people see themselves, and how they are positioned by their culture. The text enables the reader understand the many aspects of British life and culture, and provides a historical context for each topic, thus helping the reader to understand the reasons for development of certain identities. The book contains recent British cultural examples and emphasizes visual media, allowing the reader to extend their knowledge not only of traditional Britain, but of Britain today. A section of questions and exercises at the end of each chapter enables students to understand concepts raised in a practical way, as well as offering a means of assessment.
