Identity of EnglandeBook - 2004
The English are now in need of a new sense of home and belonging, and a re-assessment of who they are. This is a history of who they were, with present needs in mind. It begins by considering how the English state created an English nation which from very early days refused to see itself simply as the state's creature. It considers also how that nation survived shattering revolutions in industry, urban living and global conflict while at the same time retaining a softer, more humane vision of themselves and their land. From this rich store of history and possibility, the book connects how the meaning of England has changed and changed again in the past with how it is changing now in the future.
