Bonds of Empire

West Indians and Britishness from Victoria to Decolonization

Anne Spry Rush

  • Explores the implications of twentieth-century British imperial identity and culture beyond the dominions, so adds to recent historical work on the British World which has tended to concentrate on the former "white dominions".
  • Gives insight into Black British culture and society as well as that of the former British Caribbean as part of one social and cultural system
  • Investigates a great variety of topics in terms of imperial identity and British culture, so reveals significant links between topics (such as education, radio development, royal ceremonies) that are more often studied on their own.
