Contributors to this text discuss what it is to be British or Irish, and how people come to describe themselves as such. The study offers a comparative, theoretically informed analysis of the cultural formation of the Atlantic Archipelago, working across the disciplines of history, geography, literature and cultural studies. It also includes specific case-studies on contemporary poetry, fiction, drama, popular music and art. The essaye respond to recent constitutional developments in Great Britain and Ireland, exploring their implications both for the cultural negotiation of marginality and for established critical paradigms
