Log-in for full text

This chapter reconsiders the Britishness of England given that the United Kingdom is still the political location for the continuing legends and anxieties of Englishness. It suggests that the notion of Britishness as a way of life implied sentiments of loyalty much deeper than legalistic arrangements, and explains that conversational tension between citizenship and patriotism is one of the dominant themes of British public discourse. The chapter also discusses the argument which suggests an increasing sense of English self-consciousness and highlights the claim that while the other nations within the United Kingdom had retained their distinctive identities, the English had found it more difficult to do so.
