The Tribes of Britain: who are we? And where do we come from? – David Miles

Continuing to fill in the large gaps left by my mis-education, I decided to read this book. Not only is it an attractive one for the bookshelf (although it did violate my rule for judging books by their covers by having shiny gold print on the front), it is also attractively written. It’s informative and readable and has many interesting little facts that I’ll probably wheel out at dinner parties to bore people with. It’s long enough to get really stuck into, but unfortunately ends on a bit of a low note with an academic nod to political correctness with a kind of ‘Britain’s always been changing and therefore hadn’t we all better rub along?’ Kind of predictable, or perhaps that’s just my cynicism.
