Xenophobe's Guide to the Welsh

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Synopsis:

This is one of a series of guides designed to tell the truth about other nations, using sweeping generalizations and observations as a base, detailing what to expect and how to cope with it. The guides try to explain why things are done the way they are and they try to allay the feelings of trepidation with which the xenophobe approaches new territory. This particular book looks at the Welsh.

Book Description OVAL BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Updated. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Welsh willfulness"The Welsh are stubbornvery, very stubborn. The Welsh themselves would probably rather say tenacious, but to anyone on the receiving end a better description might well be bloody-minded. "Proud and proud of it"Welsh pride is real pridethe sort of mindless, instinctive, animal pride that requires no justification or excuse. It is simply pride for the sake of pride. Such pride is the only thing one has left when one has been stripped of everything else."It's not unusual to be . . . an actor"Given the propensity of Welsh people of all types to overact at every given opportunity, it is not surprising that those who manage to tone it down a bit have gone on to world fame as actors (or politicians, who are, after all, only an inferior species of actors)."Warriors at heart"The Welsh are extremely proficient at rugby. They enjoy it and they take it seriously. This is because rugbywith its physical aggression, tactics, disciplined use of brute force, and organized violenceis the closest thing modern day life can offer to Wales' traditional national sport: war.".
