Description

At a time of resurgent popular interest in history, Jonathan Clark's new book is a landmark defence of traditional values. He argues that our sense of tradition and community, and even our morality is being destroyed. In a series of original and incisive chapters on, among other things, Anglo-American relations, the decline of the United Kingdom as a entity and the absence of English nationalism, Clark argues for an alternative to an apparently liberal attitude to morality and politics and a dedication to the present, based instead upon a clear recognition of the value of the past. An important and timely book in which a distinguished historian attacks - vigorously, brilliantly and elegantly - Britain's loss of tradition.
