Extra Resources - Chapter 23
The best way to carry forward the themes of this chapter, and this book, is to look back, to look out and to look forward. Colley (1996) is a wonderful study of the 'forging of the nation'. Coates (2000) is a partisan, scholarly and highly original study of the world system and Britain's place in it. Gamble (2003) directly addresses the future of the 'world island', his evocative phrase for Britain.
The best web site for this chapter is the site for Democratic Audit from the University of Essex, referred to in the preceding chapter. It is an immensely rich resource for the student of Britain and the student of democracy: http://www.democraticaudit.com/.
