About this book
A fascinating insight into the current state of Britain that surprises and overturns much received wisdom of today's society. Leading geographer Dorling dissects the nation and reveals such things as: Muslims are more likely to marry non-Muslims in Britain than Christians are to marry non-Christians; most people in Britain never live long enough to experience being burgled; and the greatest threat to life in Britain of those aged under 40 is the car.
When it comes to immigration, the population explosion, the collapse of the family, the north-south divide, devolution, or the death of the countryside, common wisdom tells us that we are in trouble; however, this is far from the truth. Offering an anatomy of contemporary Britain, this title reveals unexpected truths about the way we live.
