During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa were increasingly drawn together by an imperial press system. This is the first scholarly study of the development of that system. Simon J. Potter examines key debates during episodes such as the South African War and the First World War, and reveals the ambiguous impact of the system on local, national, and imperial identities.

About the Author:

Simon J. Potter is a Lecturer in Imperial History, National University of Ireland, Galway.

Review:


"...Potter's deceptively short monograph displays journalistic precision, brevity, and accessibility without sacrificing scholarly rigor and sophistication....This book will be a valuable contribution to British imperial history as well as to media studies. In our globalized age of twenty-four hour television news networks and live feeds via satellite it is also a timely reminder of the potent mix of news, money and national and international identities."--The Albion Journal


"Potter has written a superb book that makes an essential revisionist contribution to imperial and media historiographies."--Journalism Studies


"Overall this is an excellent book that in many ways embodies the better qualities of the subject it analyzes. Potter's deceptively short monograph displays journalistic precision, brevity, and accessibility without sacrificing scholarly rigor and sophistication."--Albion

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa were increasingly drawn together by an imperial press system. This is the first scholarly study of the development of that system. Revealed to contemporaries by the South African War, the basis on which the system would develop soon became the focus for debate. Commercial organizations, including newspaper combinations and news agencies such asReuters, fought to protect their interests, while 'ccnstructive imperialists' attempted to enlist the power of the state to strrengthen the system. Debate culminated in fierce controversies over state censorship and propaganda during and after the First World War.Based on extensive archival research, this study addresses crucial themes, including the impact of empire on the press, Britain's imperial experience, and the idea of a 'British world.' Challenging earlier nationalist accounts, Dr Potter draws out the ambiguous impact of the imperial press system on local, national, and imperial identities. Seller Inventory # LHB9780199265121
