National identity and Britishness
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter focuses on the construction of British identities and the patriotic dimensions of the anti-Market discourse. It argues that while post-war nationalism is generally conceptualised as the outpost of extremism, a greater understanding of the phenomenon is gained from acknowledging its pervasive and therefore banal relationship with the conduct of everyday life. This chapter examines the theoretical constructs that might help account for the endurance of nationalism in a globalising era and the mechanisms which facilitated the imagination of British identities and sustained visions of national uniqueness. It also identifies the specific components of British identity that were manifested in the first application debate or the ones that lent themselves to manipulation in the anti-Market discourses.
