 About the Book 

Britannia—the towering female with helmet and spear, and a symbol of the British isles—has been one of British history’s most enduring icons. But who is she, and who does she represent? Who are the British? The Scots, Welsh, Irish, and English haveMoreBritannia—the towering female with helmet and spear, and a symbol of the British isles—has been one of British history’s most enduring icons. But who is she, and who does she represent? Who are the British? The Scots, Welsh, Irish, and English have been asking themselves these questions for hundreds of years. In this probing examination of these questions, Davis Powell charts the political evolution of the UK from the Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland in 1800 to the late 20th-century debates over devolution to Scotland and Wales, the future of Northern Ireland, and Britains membership in the EU.
