This book examines the Great Exhibition as a decisive moment in the formation of a capitalist world picture. In so doing it foregrounds a vision of peace and progress which took hold of British society, within the Crystal Palace and beyond. It emphasizes too that this Victorian understanding of global order legitimized imperial ambition.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Young's thought-provoking study succeeds in capturing the frictions, discontinuities and negotiations between one of the exhibition's abstract 'grand narratives' and the plurality of competing narratives which the heterogeneous material culture of the display inspired.' - ZAA
