"The British World" is based on the assumption that the British Empire was held together not merely by ties of trade and defence but by a shared sense of British identity, which linked British communities around the globe. Newspapers, radio, film and sport bound people together to what, in many respects, was an imaginary or imagined empire of the mind which projected a common set of ideas, opinions and principles.
Focusing on the themes of migration, identity and the media, this book is an exploration of these and other interconnected themes that help define the British World of the late 19th and 20th centuries.
