MEDIA REVIEWS

"Cinema and Society in the British Empire is ... a thoroughly fascinating book. ... It reveals the complexity and nuance of British colonial rule in the tropical empire while exploring cinema's crucial role within it. ... This is an accessibly written, broad-ranging and impeccably researched book that is certain to be a key point of reference for future scholars of cinema-going in the British Empire. It is sure to attract a wide readership." (Robert James, The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History, Vol. 42 (3), 2014)
