(Humanistyka i Poznanie / red. Wojciech Kalaga)
Britishness and Cultural Studies: Continuity and Change in Narrating the Nation is a collection of introductory texts for British Cultural Studies courses in Polish universities and colleges. Representing 'British culture' the authors acquaint students with Cultural Studies methodologies and practice, especially in multi- and cross-cultural contexts. Narration of national culture is examined from diverse perspectives: class, ethnicity and gender; history and postcoloniality. The interdisciplinary quality is achieved through analysis of literature, art, mass culture, international relations, myths and stereotypes. Students are encouraged to interpret contemporary phenomena such as globalisation, migration, tourism, the age of information, cross0cultural fertilisation and the rise of new qualities and values. Britishness... offers both academic and personal approaches to culture.

The New British Constitution / Vernon Bogdanor. - Oxford : Hart Publishing, 2009. - XIII, 319 s. ; 23 cm.
Constitutional law Great Britain
Constitutional history Great Britain
Great Britain Politics and government
The last decade has seen radical changes in the way we are governed. Reforms such as the Human Rights Act and devolution have led to the replacement of one constitutional order by another. This book is the first to describe and analyse Britain's new constitution, asking why it was that the old system, seemingly hallowed by time, came under challenge, and why it is being replaced. The Human Rights Act and the devolution legislation have the character of fundamental law. They in practice limit the rights of Westminster as a sovereign parliament, and establish a constitution which is quasi-federal in nature. The old constitution emphasised the sovereignty of Parliament. The new constitution, by contrast, emphasises the separation of powers, both territorially and at the centre of government. The aim of constitutional reformers has been to improve the quality of government. But the main weakness of the new constitution is that it does little to secure more popular involvement in politics. We are in the process of becoming a constitutional state, but not a popular constitutional state. The next phase of constitutional reform, therefore, is likely to involve the creation of new forms of democratic engagement, so that our constitutional forms come to be more congruent with the social and political forces of the age. The end-point of this piecemeal process might well be a fully codified or written constitution which declares that power stems not from the Queen-in Parliament, but, instead, as in so many constitutions, from `We, the People'. The old British constitution was analysed by Bagehot and Dicey. In this book Vernon Bogdanor charts the significance of what is coming to replace it. The expenses scandal shows up grave defects in the British constitution. Vernon Bogdanor shows how the constitution can be reformed and the political system opened up in`The New British Constitution'.

Collected Poems / Alun Lewis. - Bridgend : Seren, 1994. - 206 s. ; 21 cm.
Słowo kluczowe: British poetry ; poetry ; Lewis Alun
Alun Lewis (1915-1944), the remarkable poet and story writer, died, aged 28, in Burma during the Second World War. Some critics see him as the last of the great Romantic poets, a twentieth century Keats. Others view him as the bridge between pre-war poets like Auden and Yeats to post-war poets such as Hughes and Gunn. He was born and raised in Depression-struck south Wales and, following degrees in history at Aberystwyth and Manchester, became a teacher there. Early in 1940, despite his pacifist inclinations he enlisted and, after long periods of training, joined the war in India.

Collected Poems 1934-1952 / Dylan Thomas. - Londyn : J.M. Dent & Sons LTD, [ 1967 ]. - 182 s. ; 22 cm.
Słowo kluczowe: British poetry ; poetry ; Thomas Dylan
Writing as long ago as 1936, Edith Sitwell said of Thomas: "The work of this young man is on a huge scale both in theme and structurally, and the form of many of the poems is superb." Thomas, one of the most controversial poets of the 20th century, is also one of the most widely discussed, dividing both critics and readers -- "the scoffers and the understanders", as Kenneth Hopkins once put it.
