What are the English about? Being English is an elusive quality that covers traits ranging from stiff upper lips and cucumber sandwiches to spineless clergymen and peculiar religion. The English are supposed to be polite and reserved - or a bunch of raving drunken hooligans. Drawing extensively on quotes from famous commentators, Fiona Ledger introduces all the myths, stereotypes and all things good and bad that people have had to say about the English. A perfect introduction, full of English humour, cartoons and classic wit.
