A panoramic view of four aspects of Britain and the United States of America:
Facts, figures, and opinions on the lifestyles and attitudes of the peoples of Britain and the USA.
From Land's End to John O' Groats, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Physical and human geography, weather and climate, transport and communications, industry and national production.
Texts range from pre-Norman Britain to the Thatcher "revolution", from pre-colonial America to the Bush administration.
Front the British Monarchy and Constitution to Trade Unions and the Media; from the US Presidency and Congress to Education and Wall Street.
Written for intermediate students of English, Aspects of Britain and the USA allows students to find parallels and differences between the two nations, and to compare them with their own countries. The exercise material guides students to the understanding of the texts and gives opportunities for oral and written summary.
