The individual works that made up 'England and the English' were first published in 1905, 1906, and 1907. This is the first British edition to bring Ford's exploration of what it means to be English into one volume, and it includes a detailed introduction, and Ford's preface to the one-volume American edition (1907). The first book of the trilogy is a brilliant evocation of the chaotic energy of modern London; later books delve into the rural past and examine the formation of the English character.
