Studying British Cultures: An Introduction
Studying British Cultures is a lively and provocative volume of essays which offers the ideal introduction to a contentious area. The contributors, who have been instrumental in establishing the discipline of British Cultural Studies, explore a wide range of critical debates on cultural identity and explode the myth that Britain is made up of a homogenous people.

Read this mostly for the chapter on the Welsh situation, by Katie Gramich, which is as good as expected, though short. The division between Welsh-speaking and non-Welsh-speaking is explored, and a rift between the two suggested, and the impending loss of the Welsh language... Published in 1997, though, so I expect that the analysis would be different now. Whether in a positive way or a bad, though, I truly don't know.
