Englishness remains hard to define. What is England? When was England forged? Who are the icons that defined England and influenced its identity? What is England now? In this concise enquiry into English Identity, Martin Walker looks at the gradual development of England from the Dark Ages to the present day. Great English leaders as well as current tensions surrounding England are considered in a uniquely direct and unequivocal manner. In analysing the complex relationships and the eventful past of English history, In Search of the Lionheart Nation contributes to the on-going debate over England's role in the world both past and present.
