In this charming social study, Poirier plays with national stereotypes—which are both stupid and dangerous—with dexterity and savoir faire. She goes beneath the surface to explain why France and Britain are different, and why they have been arguing over their differences for several centuries. Covering the worlds of art, politics, food, sex, history, media, and philosophy, this study neatly delineates just what makes the Brits so British, and the French so very French.
