The African Presence

Representations of Africa in the construction of Britishness

Graham Harrison

Published by Manchester University Press

This book considers the ways that representations of Africa have contributed to the changing nature of British national identity. Using interviews, photo archives, media coverage, advertisements, and web material, the book focuses on major Africa campaigns: the abolition of slavery, anti-apartheid, drop the debt, and Make Poverty History.
