English Nationalism, Brexit and the Anglosphere : Wider Still and Wider Paperback / softback
by Ben Wellings
Part of the New Perspectives on the Right series
This is the first sustained research that examines the inter-relationships between English nationalism, Brexit and the Anglosphere.
Much initial analysis of Brexit concentrated on the revolt of those 'left behind' by globalization, whereas this book analyses the elite project behind Brexit.
This project was framed within the political traditions of an expansive English nationalism.
Far from being parochial 'Little Englanders', elite Brexiteers sought to lessen the rupture of leaving the European Union by suggesting a return to trade and security alliances with true friends and traditional allies in the Anglosphere.
By advancing our understanding of English nationalism through an analysis of the elite project of Brexit and its links with the Anglosphere, this book will appeal to students and scholars of British and European politics and international relations as well as the emerging field of trans-national networks amongst and between the English-speaking nations of the world. -- .
