" - from EMPIRE: WHAT RULING THE WORLD DID TO THE BRITISH I acquired a fondness for England early. Growing up in my demographic - white, upper-middle class - in Southern California in the 1950s, it's not surprising that I was exposed to the tales of Robin Hood, King Arthur, and Sherlock Holmes by parents who loved to read. Regarding the Pain of Others: Susan Sontag: 9780141012377: Books.
