The 14 broad-ranging and innovative essays in this collection examine the role of media and communications in shaping the British imperial experience in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With perspectives drawn from both the peripheral context of the colonised and the metropolitan gaze of the colonisers, revealing new light is shed upon the part played by media institutions in shaping the political, economic, social and cultural dynamics of the British colonies and Dominions. The contributors seek to situate the role of media in the context of the empire and in the process throw light on the history of the media itself - in each case exhibiting sensitivity to the problematic relationship between media and the practice of imperial domination, of the economics of news collection and distribution, as well as the differing viewpoints of producers and consumers. The communication-media examined include electric telegraphs and news agencies, newspapers (national, provincial and local), books and printed ephemera, newsreels and wireless. In geographic terms, the coverage of the essays is equally wide, with contributions relating to South Africa, Kenya, Central Africa and Bechuanaland, Britain and the Indian sub-continent, Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, Canada, and Malaya.
