The Great War and the British Empire : Culture and Society Hardback

Edited by Michael Walsh, Andrekos Varnava

Part of the Routledge Studies in First World War History series

Description

In 1914 almost one quarter of the earth's surface was British.

When the empire and its allies went to war in 1914 against the Central Powers, history's first global conflict was inevitable.

It is the social and cultural reactions to that war and within those distant, often overlooked, societies which is the focus of this volume.

From Singapore to Australia, Cyprus to Ireland, India to Iraq and around the rest of the British imperial world, further complexities and interlocking themes are addressed, offering new perspectives on imperial and colonial history and theory, as well as art, music, photography, propaganda, education, pacifism, gender, class, race and diplomacy at the end of the pax Britannica.
