Summary
"Think you know all about England? Think again! Matt Brown, the Editor-at-Large of Londonist.com, is about to set you straight. What evokes England to you? Winston Churchill's wartime speeches? Keeping a stiff upper lip? Morris dancing? Guess what? Those speeches were delivered by an actor; that supposedly British saying is actually an Americanism; and the popular folk dance started in Italy. This ... myth-busting book takes Anglophiles on a fun ride through British history, culture, and character. Packed with details that deliver ... insight into the true England, it covers the arts, entertainment, food, drink, kings and queens, traditions, and politics. An additional chapter explores Scottish, Welsh, and Irish legends that the English have been peddling as theirs for decades . . . and need to be laid to rest.--Amazon.com description
