'The only true history of a country', wrote Thomas Macaulay, 'is to be found in its newspapers.' Yet in the past scholars of imperial history and of the media have worked in separate, compartmentalized spheres and it is only recently that an integrationist approach has been taken towards studying the imperial experience. Media and the British Empire explores how the media shaped and defined the economic, social, political and cultural dynamics of the British Empire by viewing it from the perspective of the colonized as well as the colonizers.

About the Author:

CHANDRIKA KAUL is Lecturer in Modern British and Imperial History at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.

Review:

'Media and the British Empire is a wide-ranging and fascinating collection of essays, which describe and examine the role of the media in the empire during the 19th and 20th centuries. As some of the contributions dramatically illustrate, that role was extremely significant.' - Bill Kirkman, The Round Table
'Media and the British Empire is thoroughly interdisciplinary. It innovatively integrates media and imperial politics across the colonies, as well as within them, and synthesizes specific incidents with theoretical explorations of media permeability that permitted local and even individual voices to resist imperial power. These essays, conveying how Victorian press developments persisted well into the twentieth century, offer incisive, counter-intuitive insights into the ways national and class identities cohere and diffuse around the reporting of events. Despite collaborations with the politically powerful, media do not fully control news reception and can be undone by rumor or individual persistence. Without erasing realities of imperial repression, this excellent anthology reassesses empire as non-monolithic, dialogic, dialectical processes subject to highly nuanced metropolitan and colonial imperial media variables to expand our understanding of the complex textures of imperial media.' - Julie F. Codell, Victorian Studies
