The English and their country

by Thomas Burke | 14 October 2016
Category: British History
Synopsis
We, Americans, can all agree, there's something a bit peculiar about the English. For centuries, they have been a puzzle to the people of other countries. Originally produced for overseas forces stationed in England during World War II, The English and Their Country attempts to solve this puzzle, providing a helpful account of English characteristics for confused guests. This quirky facsimile helps clarify many peculiarities of our friends across the pond, such as: Why are English people so reserved and shy? Why do they talk about the weather so much? What is the difference between northerners and southerners? Including everything from a description of England's geography and climate to an explanation of the English class system, this book is a light-hearted and amusing take on English life and customs that will delight any modern-day Anglophile.
