The British World: Diaspora, Culture, and Identity
Carl Bridge, Kent Fedorowich
Psychology Press, 2003 - History - 240 pages
This collection of essays is based upon 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 that linked British communities around the globe. 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.
