European Identity

Paperback
by Green, Stephen

It gets trickier once you arrive: Not even the English are keen to explain what England actually is. Why do the English eat what they eat, why do they do what they do? And why do many across the world still believe that England and Englishness is something to aspire to, something to adore?...

Marco Polo

Paperback
by Clements, Jonathan
The records of the Chinese Yuan dynasty do not mention a Marco Polo at all (and they should), and there are some suspicious omissions from Polo's text - no tea, no foot-binding, no mention of Chinese printing, or even of the Great Wall. Did Polo even go to China?
