Priestleys democratic populism- Who guitarist Pete Townshends modernist rebellion- Vivienne Westwoods anti-fashion- David Dabydeens blackening of the literary and visual canon- or Mark Wallingers detournement of English oil painting.Kevin Davey, drawing on the work of Gramsci and Julia Kristeva, argues that any analysis of Englishness should aknowledge these figures, and goes on to pose searching questions about New Labours vision of the nation.With this book the debate about Englishness grows up.

It deserves to be, and surely will be, one of the most influential.~Stephen HoweAn original and incisive analysis of the peculiarities of the English, offering a variety of new perspectives on both the pasts and possible futures of Anglo-Britishness.~David Morley
