    In this acclaimed study of British statehood, identity and culture, Tom Nairn dispels the conviction that the Royal family is nothing more than an amusing relic of feudalism or a mere tourist attraction. Instead, he argues that the monarchy is both apex and essence of the British state, the symbol of a national backwardness. Nairn's powerful and bitterly comic prose lays bare 21st century Britain's peculiar, pseudo-modern national identity. Updated second edition.
