The Aboriginal People of England: the culture of class politics in contemporary Britain  
Gillian Evans (University of Manchester)

Paper long abstract:

This paper gives an anthropological analysis of the legal precedent at the heart of the British National Party's constitution and argues that a significant shift in the structure of sociality in Britain is taking place. This shift is to do with an intersection between the post-colonial and the post-industrial moment in world politics and in Britain this is marked by a move away from classifications of social class towards a preoccupation with race, ethnicity and cultural nationalism framed as indigeneity.
