Beschreibung

In this completely revised and updated edition of international bestseller WATCHING THE ENGLISH, anthropologist Kate Fox takes a revealing look at the quirks, habits and foibles of the English people.

Now with new survey data to add weight to her original fieldwork findings, and more extensive field-research and experiments to back up earlier observations, Kate Fox has deciphered yet more enigmatic behaviour codes, adding new rules, new subcultures, new chapters and over 100 updates. If you're English, this new edition of Kate Fox's acclaimed international bestseller will make you stand back and re-examine everything you take for granted - and if you aren't English you'll finally understand all our peculiar little ways.

WATCHING THE ENGLISH has sold more than half a million copies and has been translated into many languages. Not only a worldwide bestseller, but also a set text for university anthropology courses, WATCHING THE ENGLISH has been widely praised as a revealing and entertaining dissection of the English national character.

Kate Fox's brilliant idea is to treat the British as another tribe...where she's particularly astute is in examining the exact pattern of clichés. Any study of the English must cover our class obsession, and Fox deals with the subject thoroughly. Harry Mount, author of How England Made the English

Anthropology at it's best
von Karina aus Wien am 15.10.2014
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Divided into several chapters (Pub talk, Work Rules,etc..) Kate Fox describes the behaviour of the English. By use of field-research and many interviews, she finds out what the "English heart" is made of. It's a fantastic read, and a must-have for every anglophile!! Interesting and full of English humour.
