How was Great Britain made? And what does it mean to be British? In this prize-winning book, Linda Colley combines imperial, political, social, and cultural history to analyze the evolution of Britishness, evoking its enduring tensions as well as its powerful characteristics. Hailed at its publication as the most dazzling and comprehensive study of a national identity yet to appear” (Tom Nairn), Britons is now reissued with a new Preface by the author commenting on the book’s genesis and critical reception and on recent political developments. A sweeping survey, . . . evocatively illustrated and engagingly written.” Harriet Ritvo, New York Times Book Review Dashingly written and firmly unsentimental.” Keith Thomas, New York Review of Books Extremely learned and penetrating . . . [and] most entertaining.” Conor Cruise O’Brien, New Republic Challenging, fascinating, enormously well informed.” John Barrell, London Review of Books [Colley] has a capacity for historical generalizations that puts her into the front rank among her contemporaries.” E. P. Thompson, Dissent Absolutely magnificent.” Jeffrey Hart, National Review

Review :

“A sweeping survey, . . . evocatively illustrated and engagingly written.”—Harriet Ritvo, New York Times Book Review


“Dashingly written and firmly unsentimental.”—Keith Thomas, New York Review of Books


“Extremely learned and penetrating . . . [and] most entertaining.”—Conor Cruise O’Brien, New Republic


"A forceful and eloquent analysis of the 'subject, no citizen' mind-set which bound the English, Scots and Welsh together.  Impressive prose, and sharp interpretation of visual material, compelled assent."—Christopher Harvie, Times Literary Supplement

(Christopher Harvie Times Literary Supplement)

". . . the most dazzling and comprehensive study of a national identity yet to appear in any language. It ranges as widely as its subject demands—taking in things often forgotten by conventional political history. . . . It is a model of its kind."—Tom Nairn, The Scotsman (Tom Nairn The Scotsman 2009-03-24)
