The Abolition of Britain : From Winston Churchill to Princess Diana Paperback
This book offers a powerful polemic on the decline of modern day Britain.Hitchens identifies everything that he feels has gone wrong with Britain since the Second World War and makes the case for the 'many millions who feel that they have become foreigners in their own land and wish with each succeeding day that they could turn the clock back'.
Writing with brilliance and flair, Hitchens targets the pernicious effects of TV culture, the corruption and decay of English language, the loss of deference and the syrupy confessional mood brought on by the death of Princess Diana.
This new paperback edition includes a brand new introduction taking the story up to the present day.
