An Up-close look at England's Lumpenproletariat

For a close-up look at contemporary England, may I recommend Theodore Dalrymple. I admit I was deeply disappointed in The New Vichy Syndrome, but other titles, Life at the Bottom, for example, will enlighten the reader greatly, even those living in England today. The link here takes you to Dalrymple's list.

Some reviews of Life at the Bottom here:

I think I've read five Dalrymple books so far. I liked four of them especially. That might account for my choice to move to Peru.
