" Here is Britain stripped of its pretensions, delusions and self-mythologising. In addition of a nation that is disintegrating into anarchy, Auberon Waugh portrays a trend-crazed people, who, because they have let go of traditional values, hag-ridden by every passing fashion. The New Briton, in Waugh's view, is ugly, boring and stupid." -- from the rear panel blurb. The best of the author's "Another Voice" column in the The Spectator. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
