About this book
Paxman's fascinating portrait of a nation and its people is reissued with a new cover look here, in tandem with "The Political Animal" and to coincide with the paperback publication of "On Royalty". It has sold over 560,000 copies to date. 'Intelligent, well-written, informative and funny. A book to chew on, dip into, quote from and exploit in arguments' Andrew Marr, "Observer"
A title, in which, the author sets out to find about the English. Not the British overall, not the Scots, not the Irish or Welsh, but the English. Why do they seem so unsure of who they are?
