The Exhibition was the largest such public event in the nations history to that point, and it heralded a turning point in the history of British imperialism. Situated as it was at the intersection of empire, national identity, and popular culture, it embodied ongoing conflicts over the future direction of imperialism. This much-needed study of the British Empire Exhibition helps to correct an historiographical imbalance by illustrating durable, persistent connections between empire and domestic society in Britain during the interwar years, bridging the era of Victorian dominance and the new liberal discourses of progress and colonial development that emerged in the 1920s.
