5-0 out of 5 stars Rule, Britannia!
'British Heritage' has been one of my favourite magazines since my childhood. I learned much of British history, country life, culture, and style from this magazine. Despite the occasional categorisation under Archaeology in some guides and libraries, this magazine is in fact a remarkably broad-based publication that examines various aspects of British life. I think the Queen might be a bit surprised to find a story about how she spends Christmas under the heading 'Archaeology'.

In my home I have a large stack of 'British Heritage', which several decades ago incorporated the magazine 'British History Illustrated'. The quality of writing and subject matter has been remarkably consistent over the years. One will find experts in various aspects of British life among the authors: such British names such as Lord Crathorne, Victoria Sackville-West, Beryl Olive Bailey, James Stockesbury frequently show up in the contents; major scholars too, such as Norman Davies, Alison Weir, and Antonia Fraser also show up on occasion to delight the readers.

This is not a 'Royal' publication, nor is it an exclusively upper-class periodical. While one will be treated frequently to tours of the great country houses (a large number remain unknown not only to the regular tourist trails but also to the nearby residents), and regular features on the royals past and present, in 'British Heritage' one will also find a regular offering of military history, literary history and analysis (a 1981 article on the Carlyles comes to mind as particularly worthwhile), geography, geology, and yes, archaeology. Britain has a settled history spanning millenia; the pre-history goes back even further (Stonehenge is not the only pre-written-historical point of interest!).

Holiday issues often explore how Britons in different parts of the kingdom and in different historical periods celebrated, as well as tips on how to integrate these traditional and/or lost customs into one's own family celebrations.

Britain being an island, there is much of seafaring history, custom and lore that is presented. A good article on the network of canals and rivers, now much less vital for transport, appeared recently, as well as an examination of undersea gravesites and archaeological discoveries. In fact, this becomes apropos as the Government debate whether or not to disturb wreckage dating to the second world war for offshore mining; history continues into the present, and the debate is on about what is important to preserve for future generations--a constant theme in building, development and land use, which is now extending offshore.

One will find the occasion features on pubs of historic or cultural interest, a look at shopping past and present, and of course, information for the prospective and current tourist to add more of an historical dimension to the latest drive-by sighting.

'British Heritage' is not confined to the British Isles, however, and frequently includes an article on one of the colonies or commonwealth countries, particularly as those places have attempted to preserve parts of their own 'British Heritage.'

Britannia may no longer rule the waves, but it has had a profound and lasting impact on the world. This magazine helps recapture some of the spirit that made this possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful, informative treat
As a long time subscriber, I have found British Heritage to be as creative and interesting a magazine as must exist. Subjects are diverse, the writing intelligent and often great fun, presentation delightful. It covers everything from history (for which it is a goldmine - there are unexpected and fascinating topics in each issue) to wonderful places to visit to ideas for a perfect afternoon tea.

Another distinguishing feature of this magazine is that it is solid journalism and creative, scholarly writing. Though it would be valuable to travellers (the more for those who spend a good deal of time in England), it is not aimed at tourists, nor is it a publication with a primary aim at increasing tourism.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite
"My lips are sealed!", vows Patsy Stone regarding a recent scandal of hers in the Absolutely Fabulous episode "Hospital"."You'll do 'Hello!' magazine, won't you?", asks her equally obnoxious best mate Edina Monsoon. Patsy mimes unzipping her mouth and says, "oh yeah- of course!" "HELLO!" magazine is like an English combination of "People" and "The National Enquirer". This is a fun mag with loads of American and international celebs alike. What makes it different from it's Yank competitors is the amount of entertainment news you get abroad, plus information on the Royals and "society" folk. A very pricey subscription, but worth every penny to me. If you, like me, are an Anglophile, you cannot live without HELLO! magazine.

4-0 out of 5 stars A British Classic
Though you can't take it terribly seriously, Hello! Magazine is a juicy read. Photo spreads of your favorite actor's house. The latest on the British Royalty. You get the idea. (There is a classic "Absolutely Fabulous" where Patsy gets profiled for Hello! only to see the article turn into "Patsy Stone: My plastic surgery nightmere"). A good sized magazine with unobtrusive advertising and lots of photos. Fun! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best literary review in the world today
The London Review of Books is simply the best generalist journal on topics of literature, the arts, culture, history, politics, philosophy published in the world today--it now beats the NY Review of Books in terms of giving you the full picture and leaves the TLS back in the dust.If you want to get your bearings in the world ofculture and politics, this is must reading.

2-0 out of 5 stars What the....?
I subscribed to this publication expecting to read reviews of various fiction/non-fiction books - what it turns out to be is a series of editorials, premised around virtually all non-fiction.All very high-brow and frankly, quite boring.The one item worthwhile is the classifieds.I think I'll ask to cancel my subscription and obtain a refund.I anticipated something that would help me in finding great books to read but after 4 issues, I haven't seen anything of interest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does Not Compare
There is no comparing the incredibly honest reviews on Amazon with the high-brow reviews found in the LRB. One surveys average readers, and the other is the opinion of people who make a living writing about books. I, Brockeim, am more like the people than the professionals, and believes most of you are as well. ... Read more
