Buruma, Ian

$12.00

What divides Britain from Europe, and Europe from the US? The fascination wtih England and English ideas, literature, and culture - from folks as diverse as Voltaire and Hitler - are explored in this witty history. Buruma was in Washington DC when this was published, but has lived around the world, and is half-Dutch and half-British, uniquely positioned to critique the love-hate relationship the world has with the former empire. Random House, List $25.95. 1998. Hb, Dj. USED. $12.00
