UNDERSTANDING THE ENGLISH

An ""exile"" interprets his own people to America and does a good job. While seeming to agree with the critical approach, he debunks a good deal of it, and reconstructs a clear-visioned, fair, and objective picture of the English in all classes and all circumstances, their life and customs, their lares and penates, their contribution and their shortcomings. Done with some quiet humor. Readable -- but not as entertaining as Odette Keun's I Discover the English. One wonders where there is a market. Possibly, the fringe of the travel market. Those who sincerely want better international good will. Limited, at the outside.
