British Cultural Studies includes over thirty essays written by expert contributors, covering almost every aspect of culture and identity in Britain today and addressing the current transformations of British culture and identity in the context of globalization. The opening section of the book deals with different conceptions of Britishness and identity, including English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Asian and Black British identities. Section Two then analyses the interplay between tradition and heritage in contemporary culture, whilst the final section looks at the world of lifestyle groups, subcultures, and cultural politics and the way in which they have come in many ways to substitute for notions of Britishness.

Industry Reviews

"This book provides a stimulating and at times contentious overview of identity issues in modern Britain.... British Cultural Studies offers a valuable introduction to the vexing problems surrounding identity in Britain, its historical development, and the debates it continues to provoke among
politicians, cultural producers, and scholars."--Albion
