Images of Britain asks whether the clichéd images of fish and chips, umbrellas and bowler hats, and Charles and Diana are really accurate. It contrasts Britain at the height of the Empire with the present day of Thatcherism and membership of the EEC. Images of Britain examines the British and tries to discover what influence they have had on the world.
The Penguin New Connexions series consists of twelve books that provide supplementary and discussion material for upper intermediate and advanced students. The aim of each title is to offer a balanced view of a topical issue. Every book contains examples of texts taken from books, magazines, newspapers and reports, which provide interesting material for close study. Each text has a vocabulary list and is followed by a wide range of activities: questions, discussions, writing scenes for acting out and short stories, as well as group work to explore the major themes in each book. All the books are generously illustrated with photographs, cartoons, advertisements, charts and maps.
