In the four decades after World War II the 'Observer' newspaper stood out from its Sunday peers for its high quality reporting of the huge social and political changes happening in Britain and its disappearing empire.

This reader, published in 1984, is a compilation of extracts from the paper spanning those decades.

'Britain Observed' is far more than a language textbook; it is a faithful image of Britain's troubled recovery between its near bankruptcy in 1945 and the symbolic victory in the Falklands in 1982. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos, the book includes a variety of thought-provoking exercises for advanced learners with a serious interest in understanding the British.

With only a small stock left, we have decided to sell it at the original 1984 price - a piece of history.
