The first full-length account of 'the question of intellectuals' in twentieth-century Britain. Leading intellectual historian and cultural commentator Stefan Collini challenges the myth that there are no 'real' intellectuals in Britain and offers a persuasive analysis of 'the intellectual' as a concept as well as detailed discussions of influential figures such as T.S. Eliot, George Orwell, and Edward Said.
