Writing Englishness: An Introductory Sourcebook Summary


Writing Englishness: An Introductory Sourcebook by Judy Giles

What did it mean in the first half of this century to say `I am English?' A Practical Sourcebook on National Identity is a unique collection of extracts from writing of the era, all of which in some way raise this question. Drawn from a wide range of sources including letters, diaries, journalism, fiction, poems, parliamentary speeches and government reports, the volume is divided into five sections:
* The Ideas and Ideals of Englishness
* Versions of Rural England
* War and National Identity
* Culture and Englishness
* Domestic and Urban Englands
The editors provide an introduction to each section and conclude with suggested study activities and further reading. It also contains a chronology and bibliography, completing the framework for study. A Practical Sourcebook on National Identity is a fascinating collection which will not only be essential and accessible reading for students, but will also appeal to anyone who has ever asked what it means to become part of a national identity.
