Editorial Reviews

Review

“Over the past 30 years historians have expended a good deal of time and energy exploring how empire and the non-European world has been represented in British popular culture. But while much has been written on the subject, not very much has been seen. That’s what makes the images on these pages so revealing. Taken from the Bodleian Library’s John Johnson Collection of Printed Ephemera, they give an insight into how the British public encountered a range of imperial themes. They offer us a rich and fascinating glimpse into Britain’s social and cultural history.”
(BBC History Magazine)

My history professor required this book for an Imperialism class and I really enjoyed it. Primarily because it is mostly pictures so I got a welcome break from reading. The pictures are all different kinds of items ranging from paintings to soup cans to advertisements from different times and places. They help show the real more personal side of Imperialism and let you see the same thing the people of the times saw in advertisements to try to get the to go to Canada for example that show early propaganda.
