9780199273171: Which People's War?: National Identity and Citizenship in Wartime Britain 1939-1945

What did it mean to be British during the 'People's War'? Professor Rose uses material from newspapers, diaries, novels and letters to examine popular notions of citizenship on the home front. She shows that what we now mean by 'identity politics' was alive and well in the 1940s and that any singular conception of 'Britishness' was extremely fragile.

Review:


"[Rose's] painstakingly researched and ambitious study uses Britain as a case study tor the powerful, yet ambiguous, nature of national identity formation, especially during times of crisis...[A] necessary and enlightening addition to the scholarship on World War II, nationalism, and notions of citizenship."--History


"This exceptionally well-written and solidly researched study deserves a wide audience...Highly Recommended. All levels and collections."--CHOICE
