Overview

First Published in 1984. Following a visit to England during the Falklands Crisis, the author sets out to argue against the consensus that, as quoted by Ingram, 'the English middle class are the most xenophobic people in the world'. Ingram suggests that the English knew a world beyond their own existed, and even if they feared it, they knew they could not comprehend it. A thorough read for any historian or student seeking opinionated viewpoints on the British years from 1775 - 1835.
