A fascinating journey into the hitherto unexplored world of national anthems.

About the Author

Alex Marshall grew up in the area where London sinks into Essex. He's an award-winning journalist who has been writing about music and politics for over a decade, and who has been published in the Guardian and by the BBC, amongst others. He started investigating national anthems back in 2008. This is his first book.


[An] entertaining survey . . . As well as reminding us that there are countries whose national tune still has a power to inspire, Marshall also digs out some choice nuggets about the anthems of the world. * The Times *
Endlessly engrossing . . . Makes you realise how wrong most of us have been to take national anthems for granted, as if they somehow just appeared, rather than being the products of often fascinating history. * Reader's Digest *
Fascinating . . . Totally exceeded my expectations. Giving it my highest possible recommendation. Go read it. -- Ed Yong, 'Not Exactly Rocket Science' * National Geographic *
Very funny and entertaining and very informative. -- Robert Elms * BBC London *
Hilarious ... unforgettable ... will inspire deep thought over the meaning, construction and symbols of patriotism and national identity. * Times of India *
