27. Free Thinker: Paul Preston Us, Them and Europe
Professor Paul Preston is one of the foremost historians of modern Europe, whose work on the Spanish Civil War has led to fame and controversy in Spain itself.
As Liverpool celebrates its year as European Capital of Culture, he returns to his home town putting the case for our need to reassess British history.
He argues that we should look at the way continental Europeans see both themselves and us in order to rid ourselves of some of the myths at the heart of our national identity.
