Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The year 1984 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the British Council, an organisation dedicated to educational and cultural interchange between Britain and the rest of the world. It is an autonomous body, yet one of the strong arms of this country’s diplomacy. It is a strange fact that although the Council has devoted friends in most countries of the world, many people in Britain have no clear idea of what it does or stands for. The roots of this odd situation are revealed in the history of the Council itself, a history fascinating for what it reveals about Britain’s apparent indifference towards projecting its own national culture.
