Popis

Skripta nabízejí všeobecný pohled na Velkou Británii a Spojené státy americké. Čtenáři se dozvědí, jak tyto země fungují a jak zde žijí jejich občané i cizinci. Nejedná se o vyčerpávající popis těchto zemí a života v nich, ale nabízí se zde základní přehled pro ty, kteří by se o tyto dvě země chtěli začít zajímat detailněji. (an introduction to the UK and British studies, and to the US and American studies)
