Britain forms the greater part of the British Isles, which lie off the
north-west coast of mainland Europe. The full name is the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Great Britain comprises England, Scotland
and Wales. With a total area of about 242,000 sq km, Britain is just under 1000
km long and some 500 km across in the widest part. London is the capital. Other
major cities include Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cardiff and
Belfast. There are some 58 million people. Population density is highest in
England and lowest in Scotland.
Structure: a basic highland/lowland division - NW/SE.
Mountain regions include: the Scottish Highlands - Ben Nevis 1343m ;
the Lake District - Scafell 978 m; North Wales - Snowdon 1085 m; the Pennines -
a limestone "backbone" in N. England; the Jurassic limestone escarpments, esp.
the Cotswolds; the chalk escarpments, esp. the Chilterns, the North and South
NB: the Weald, the Fens (N. of Cambridge), the Broads (E. of Norwich).
Climate: the climate is changeable through the seasonal cycle.
Generally, the winter months from December to February are the coldest, with the
shortest hours of daylight. The temperature rises through the spring months of
March to May, and is highest throughout the summer months from June to August.
Temperatures rarely exceed 32°C (90° F) or fall below -10°C (14° F ). London is
the hottest place. The weather is mainly influenced by depressions moving
eastwards across the Atlantic. The average annual rainfall is more than 1,600 mm
(over 60 inches) in the highland areas of the west and north but less than 800
mm (30 inches) over the more fertile lowlands of the south and east.
Britain's lowest air temperatures -27°C was recorded at Braemar in Scotland
in February 1895, whilst the highest, 37.1°C, was registered at Cheltenham
south-west England, in August 1990.
Wildlife: the most widespread wild vegetation in Britain are the
heather, grasses, gorse and bracken of the moorland countryside in the,highland
regions. In lowland Britain, with the exception of a few patches of heath and
forest, farmland mainly covers the area. Common trees include oak, beech, ash
and, in Scotland, pine and birch. Wild animal life comprises mainly species of
smaller mammals ( such as badgers, foxes and rodents), birds (over . 400 species
of which have been recorded, either breeding or migrating) and insects. There
are about 30 kinds of freshwater fish. Reptiles and amphibians are few. Common
and gray seals may be seen off parts of the coast.
For many years Britain has had policies and laws to protect its natural
environment - e.g., designating National Parks and areas of outstanding natural
People: Britain absorbed a range of foreign cultures and traditions
during the early centuries - Roman, Viking and Norman among them. In more recent
times people from overseas have continued to settle in Britain, either to escape
political or religious persecution, or in search of economic opportunities.
Ethnic minorities now comprise about 5. 5 % of the population. All citizens
enjoy the same rights and privileges. Racial discrimination is unlawful under
the Race Relations Act 1976.
Languages: English is the official language, although the Welsh
language has equal validity in Wales.
Cornish is now extinct (last speaker died around 1800);
Welsh spoken by 25% of total population of Wales but in some rural areas by
75%: still very much alive with radio and TV programmes, newspapers and
festivals (Eisteddfod). Gaelic is only spoken in rural N.W.Scotland: in contrast
to Welsh, it is rapidly declining with fewer than 50,000 speakers. Local place
names in all these areas are based on the appropriate language, however. Irish
Gaelic (Erse) is rather artificially imposed within the education system. It is
the natural speech of only small numbers along the West coast.

figure who believed himself to be the last of a breed, and he was probably right. Few American writers have been more versatile or gotten more mileage from their talent. He published some 25 novels, two memoirs

aphorism, putdown or sharply worded critique of American foreign policy. Perhaps more than any other American writer except Norman
Mailer or Truman Capote, Mr. Vidal took great pleasure in being a public figure. He twice ran for office — in 1960, when he was the

Mr. Vidal was an occasional actor, appearing, for example, in animated form on “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy,” in the movie version of his own play “The Best Man,” and in the Tim Robbins movie “Bob Roberts,”
in which he played an aging, epicene version of himself. He was a more than occasional guest on TV talk shows, where his poise, wit,
looks and charm made him such a regular that Johnny Carson offered him a spot as a guest host of “The Tonight Show.” Television was
