ABSTRACT
This article describes the condition of Great Britain and its relations with Europe as of November 18, 1981. According to the author, the British have had profoundly ambivalent feelings toward Continentals. They believed that they were both different from and superior to their neighbors. The author agrees that the British were a rather virtuous and moralizing people compared to the Continentals. The role played by Great Britain in world history is explored in this article. The author argues however that the present Great Britain is no longer the great Empire it used to be.
