At a time when Scottish, Welsh and Irish nationalisms are flourishing and English nationalism disapproved, when the customs and the institutions of the English are being dismantled, either from outside by the European Union, or from inside by the political elite, and when the rising English generation has little or no knowledge of the history, culture or religion of the place where it was born, it is time to ask what England is. In this poignant and personal tribute, Roger Scruton gives an account of England which is both an illuminating analysis of its institutions and culture, and a celebration of its virtues. Covering all aspects of the English inheritance, and informed by a unique philosophical vision, "England: An Elegy" shows that there is such a country as England, that it has a distinct personality and endows its residents with a distinct moral ideal.
