This work asks how race and class are constructed through the eyes of native and immigrant. It covers how British immigrants live in the US, and how their status as foreigners is created by both American Anglophilia and the ways they perform their identities as proper Britons in their host country. It looks at the cultural aspects of this performance: how Brits play up to their accents, British reserve, sense of humour and fashion, even the way they drink beer. Given the affinity between Great Britain and the USA, many British people living in the country do not even consider themselves immigrants. This relationship between the USA and its immigrants offers an important understanding of the paradoxes of how class, identity, and race are formed in the USA.
