In this completely revised and updated edition of international bestseller WATCHING THE ENGLISH, anthropologist Kate Fox takes a revealing look at the quirks, habits and foibles of the English people.

Now with new survey data to add weight to her original fieldwork findings, and more extensive field-research and experiments to back up earlier observations, Kate Fox has deciphered yet more enigmatic behaviour codes, adding new rules, new subcultures, new chapters and over 100 updates. If you're English, this new edition of Kate Fox's acclaimed international bestseller will make you stand back and re-examine everything you take for granted – and if you aren't English you'll finally understand all our peculiar little ways.

WATCHING THE ENGLISH has sold more than half a million copies and has been translated into many languages. Not only a worldwide bestseller, but also a set text for university anthropology courses, WATCHING THE ENGLISH has been widely praised as a revealing and entertaining dissection of the English national character.

I loved the original version of this book and recommended it to lots of people, this is the “ten years after” developed version. Equally good, with a giggle and a squirm of recognition on every page; Ms Fox artfully teases out the underlying essential truths of being English and lays them before us with wit and a devastating candour.

A triumph

I started this book 3 days after returning from my first trip to America. Whilst in America I became aware of the huge cultural difference between the friendly people of the USA and traditional Brits amongst whom I’ve lived almost my whole life – I found much of American behaviour inexplicable and rather rude and personal towards someone they didn’t know. I breathed a sigh of relief when returning to England, back amongst normal people who aren’t continually nosy and telling you what they think about politics, religion and anything else the whole time.
