Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Many of the traditions which we think of as very ancient in their origins were not in fact sanctioned by long usage over the centuries, but were invented comparatively recently. This book explores examples of this process of invention - the creation of Welsh and Scottish 'national culture'; the elaboration of British royal rituals in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; the origins of imperial rituals in British India and Africa; and the attempts by radical movements to develop counter-traditions of their own. It addresses the complex interaction of past and present, bringing together historians and anthropologists in a fascinating study of ritual and symbolism which poses new questions for the understanding of our history.

Review:
Many of the traditions thought of as very ancient in their origins were not in fact sanctioned by usage over the centuries, but invented relatively recently. This book addresses the complex interaction of past and present in a fascinating study of the development of symbolic ritualism.
