The Far Country

  • A. P. Thornton


In the new volume of the Oxford History of England Mr A. J. P. Taylor is writing of a far country.1 It is the country of his own youth, the country of every Englishman now middle-aged: a country, incidentally, brusquely denied to Scotsmen or Welshmen, persons about whom Mr Taylor uncharacteristically professes to know nothing. (However, he cannot resist calling them Scotchmen, because he knows it teases.)
