The Political Force Transforming Britain

Ailsa Henderson and Richard Wyn Jones

  • A major new analysis of Englishness as a political force
  • Unique survey data showing that English euroscepticism is strongly linked to a sense of grievance about England's place within the United Kingdom and a strong feeling that the state is no longer 'theirs'
  • Makes a number of new and compelling arguments about Britishness, including the extent to which Britishness means very different things in different parts of the Britain and that British identity aligns with different - in some cases opposite - political attitudes across England, Scotland, and Wales
