Abstract

In his recent contribution to the debates about English and British identities 'The Making of English National Identity', Krishan Kumar, a professor of Sociology at the University of Virginia, writes that English national identity is an enigma, so elusive, and difficult to pin down, partly because of inseparability with British national identity, partly because of the intricate relation to other peoples: Scottish, Wales, and Irish. Although the history of Great Britain is understood as the history of four nations: England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland in general, it has largely been considered as the English history. However as the conqueror of the 'inner empire' of Great Britain, the English repressed its own national consciousness, and imposed uniformity and equality on the contributions of the various parts of the Isles, while Scottish, Welsh, and Irish had constantly begun cultivating their national identities since the Middle Ages. Kumar, Krishan. 2003
