Conflicts in terms of cultural and ethnic identities characterise the
increasingly multi-cultural and globalised societies of our time. In
Great Britain, the 'Thatcher decade' marked a watershed in British
society, bringing about important changes in the political, economic,
social and cultural reality of the country. Integrating a methodical
textual analysis within a comprehensive cultural approach, Elena
Oliete-Aldea offers a vibrant study of the hybridity, fluidity and
contingency of identity construction in Britain and explores how
contested power relations constantly intertwine discourses of gender,
class and ethnicity.
