Few nations rival the rich history, artistic achievement and contemporary verve of Britain. But who are the British? What does it mean to be British and is there such a thing as British culture? There has never been a time when the question has occasioned so much debate. "Speak the Culture: Britain" peels back the layers of this rich and complex heritage, exploring the factors – historical, political, cultural, artistic – that make the British tick. British culture is strewn with names that strike a chord the world over: Shakespeare, Churchill, Dickens, Pinter, Hitchcock, Vivienne Westwood, Lennon and McCartney – "Speak the Culture: Britain" examines the people, the history and the movements that have shaped Britain as it now is, providing key information in easily digested, entertaining chunks. It also reveals the culture of everyday life, exploring variations between the English, Scots and Welsh, and dissecting their approach to life: how they eat, socialize, vote, dress and laugh.
