books demonstrate the commitment of the ‘Studies in Imperialism Series’ to this important historiographical trend, emphasising materiality, ritual, monuments, memory, and various ways of visualising and imagining empire. 56 It is quite clear that many more such studies will follow. It is hoped that the essays in Exhibiting the Empire will make a significant contribution to such developments, while also

In spite of the weight of evidence to the contrary which has been built up since John MacKenzie published his pioneering studies Propaganda and Empire (1984) and Imperialism and Popular Culture (1986), in the Manchester University Press ‘Studies in Imperialismseries (which now exceeds 100 volumes) and in the work of a myriad of other scholars, he insisted that the working classes in Britain were ignorant of
