Cover
Mike Storry, Peter Childs
Psychology Press, 2002 - 303 Seiten
British Cultural Identities analyses contemporary British identity from the various and changing ways in which people who live in the UK position themselves and are positioned by their culture today. Each chapter covers one of the seven intersecting themes:

* education, work and leisure
* gender, sex and the family
* youth culture and style
* class and politics
* ethnicity and language
* religion and heritage
