Overview Falmet fløyel i London

The Brits are out of the EU, done with the pandemic and ready to face the future. But can the same be said of London? The capital is in the middle of an ongoing debate about what the United Kingdom should be, in its own eyes and in the eyes of the world. The city is politically red and open to Europe in an England where the winds are blowing in the opposite direction. At the same time, it is the seat of the proudest traditions and the institutions on which the new United Kingdom is to rely.

Øivind Bratberg looks at champagne socialism and culture war, life during the pandemic and the conflict over the monarchy and BBC in this non-fiction book about London.
