Welcome to Britain Today

In Britain Today – Challenges and opportunities in the age of globalization, topics and key subjects are chosen to reflect the most important social, political and cultural issues in Britain today, with a focus on those that Scandinavian lecturers and students will find particularly important and engaging.


Avoiding overly descriptive approaches, the book provides introductions to prominent ideas, social, political and cultural critique and responses, all of contemporary relevance.


In addition to providing the necessary basic and factual information, the book and its homepage suggest student assignments, topics for presentations and essays, and literature for further reading. It thus sets stages that will enable students to critically relate to attitudes and ideas, and inspire their own in-depth exploration.
