What makes the English English? Is it their eccentricity, their passionate love (or, indeed, hatred) of marmite -- or something less easily defined? In his quest to find out more about what it means to be English in a rapidly changing world, Ben takes a revealing look at the quirks, habits and foibles of the English people in his latest exploration of the nation's character(s). Covering history, attitudes to foreigners, sport, stereotypes, language and more, English is filled with revealing stories and anecdotes that provide a fascinating portrait of a nation and its people.
