Another England: How to Reclaim our National Story

Description

Synopsis
With the UK more divided than ever, England has re-emerged as a potent concept in our culture and politics. But today the dominant story told about our country serves solely the interests of the right. The people who speak of Englishness are cheerleaders for exceptionalism, other-ness, and imperial nostalgia, but there are other stories, equally compelling, about who we are: about the English people’s radical inclusivity, their deep-rooted commitment to the natural world, their long struggle to win rights for all. These stories put the Chartists, the Diggers and the Suffragettes in their rightful place alongside Nelson and Churchill.

Here, Caroline Lucas delves into our literary heritage to explore what it can teach us about the most pressing issues of our time: whether the toxic legacy of Empire, the struggle for constitutional reform, or the accelerating climate emergency. In doing so, she sketches out an alternative Englishness: one that we can all embrace to build a greener, fairer future.
